Vietti Nebbiolo Barolo Rocche 1980

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Showing a lot of evolution on the nose, this is redolent of brewed tea, mushrooms, and earth framed with the gentle caramel sweetness of oxidation and topped with hints of poppy seeds. Clear and tense in the mouth, theres an early hint of cocoa here, rather reminiscent of a tootsie roll, followed by ephemeral and elegant if faded rose petal, raspberry and dusty, earthy flavors. Smaller scaled and past peak this still shows an edge of refinement and nuanced flavors. 87pts

Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been dressed with specially-designed original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silkscreens, linocuts) inspired by the wine of that particular vintage.
