Overview

A gift to the Gods! Strong, intense and powerful, this nebbiolo is a stellar example of the fruits of Piedmont, with a nose full of truffle, cherry, tar and plum and the flavour to match. “Perbacco” translates to “For Bacchus” – this is Vietti’s offering to the Wine God. For such an offering, it would want to be good, and thankfully, it is! Enjoy it with hearty winter stews, roasted red meats and sharp aged cheeses.

Expert Reviews

MIKE BENNIE

92 Points

Good tannins is the take away message. Has very good DNA of nebbiolo – dried cherry, pleasing bitter herbs, pepper, some rose hip tea character, the motif. Succulent texture, light and very fine, tannins finish nice and chewy, earthy, slightly nutty. All up this does a very good job of being pleasing.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

For the past four generations, the Vietti family has been producing wine in Castiglione Falletto, a small village located in the centre of the Langhe region of Piedmont, from their vineyards located across the five communes designated for the cultivation and production of Barolo. Over recent years Luca Currado-Vietti had taken over the winemaking direction from his late father Alfredo, and Luca’s brother-in-law Mario Cordero responsibility for sales and marketing from Luca’s mother Luciana. Luca’s wife ElenaPenna assists with administration and public relations. Each family member is closely linked to theoverall objective, to produce the highest quality wines, whilst retaining respect for the traditions of thespecific appellations. Vineyard acquisitions primarily during the 1980s and 1990s, across the Barolocommunes and in Asti, have seen the total Vietti holdings grow to 32 hectares. Luca Currado-Vietti is notlooking to increase production, but rather to achieve better control over fruit quality, and overwinemaking and with their new winery.

Vietti produce this Barbaresco from a single 1.4 hectare vineyard Masseria in the Commune of Nieve inBarbaresco. The south facing vines are, on average, 40 years old, and are cultivated with the guyotsytem, on calcareous clay soils.
