Luca Currado is on a roll. This is the third vintage (in as many years) that blows me off my feet. The 2010 Barolo Riserva Villero is a spectacular achievement and a wine that we all aspire to have in our cellars. There is a level of truism here—an authentic portrait of the Nebbiolo grape—that is outstanding. The fruit from Villero saw 45 days of skin maceration and few rackings. The wines of Vietti are always made in reduction to guarantee their long aging future. The bouquet offers many fleeting aromas that add to its enormous complexity. You get wild berry, licorice, anise seed and a touch of iron rust. On average, this very special wine is only released every four years. Drink 2025-2050.
Vietti is één van de allerbeste Cantina’s in Piemonte. Het is een familiale onderneming in een streek waar de mentaliteit goed aansluit bij de onze en die al generaties lang heerlijke wijnen maakt. Opgelet: ons enthousiasme voor deze exquise wijnen is besmettelijk!
If forced to inhabit a desert island that only served the wines of a single producer, I would want Luca Currado to be that supplier. He excels at everything he does from his castle perch at the heart of Castiglione Falletto.
