Barolo Riserva "Villero" - an elegant, powerful, exciting and at the same time delicate wine, which affects the harmony of flavor and taste. The wine is created from the Nebbiolo grape harvested in the vineyard "Villero" on the south and southwest exposure, which is located at an altitude of 360 meters above sea level in the municipality of Castiglione Falletto. 40-year-old vineyard grows on 0.90 hectares of land with planting density of 4000 vines per hectare. The ground area is moderately loamy, mixed with white and bluish marl. Collected manually fruit fermented for 16 days in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 28-32 ° C. This was followed by a process of maceration of the skin, which lasted 10 days. Upon completion of maceration wine immediately placed in small barrels in which malolactic fermentation was carried out. Extract of wine took place in Slavonian oak casks of 27 hl. and lasted about 3 years. Vintage 2007 bottled in September 2010.
Since 1982 Vietti Barolo Riserva "Villero" was released a total of 9 times, in the best years of harvest and only category Riserva. Each label - the whole work of art, the work of famous artists of our time.
History Vietti winery has its roots in the XIX century, but only at the beginning of the XX century the winery began producing wine in bottles. In 1919, Mario Vietti made the first wine, selling most of its products in Italy. His most significant achievement was the transformation of a large family farm in the winery. In 1952, Alfredo Kurrado (husband Luciana - the daughter of Mario) continued to produce high quality wines from their own vineyards, as well as purchased grapes. Vietti winery has grown to one of the best wine producers in Piedmont and one of the first to export their wines to the United States. Alfredo was the first who began to produce wines with individual Cru. In those days, the concept was radical in our days almost every winemaker produces Barolo and Barbaresco single vineyard. Alfredo is also called the "father of Arneis", as in 1967, he devoted much time to explore and understand this almost forgotten variety. Today Arneis grapes produced the most famous white wine from the region of Roero. Now this variety is grown even on the west coast of the United States.
Since 1974, some wine Vietti decorated with design work. Each work has been used only once - for a particular vintage wine. Since 1988, the exclusive designer label dedicated only to wines from the vineyard Villero. This idea came Alfredo and his friends one winter evening with a glass of wine. Some of the friends were artists, while tasting they were inspired by color poured into a glass of wine and decided that these great wines deserve unique labels - labels, invented by artists. Has compiled a list of artists and the next day what seemed impracticable beginning to take shape. Complete collection of labels was presented at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City!
Since the 90s joined the family business and children Alfredo Luciano. Today Vietti owns 35 hectares of vineyards. Among other Houses Piedmont winery Vietti acquired worldwide fame thanks to the excellent quality of its wines. House Vietti, as stated in the well-known wine publication Italy Gamberro Rosso, "is and has always been a family wine company specializing in producing various DOC wines and DOCG".
