History

The history of the Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th Century. Only at the beginning of the 20th century, however, did the Vietti name become a winery offering its own wines in bottle. Patriarch Mario Vietti, starting from 1919 made the first Vietti wines, selling most of the production in Italy. His most significant achievement was to transform the family farm, engaged in many fields, into a grape-growing and wine-producing business.

 

Then, in 1952, Alfredo Currado (Luciana Vietti’s husband) continued to produce high quality wines from their own vineyards and purchased grapes. The Vietti winery grew to one of the top-level producers in Piemonte and was one of the first wineries to export its products to the USA market. Alfredo was one of the first to select and vinify grapes from single vineyards (such as Brunate, Rocche and Villero). This was a radical concept at the time, but today virtually every vintner making Barolo and Barbaresco wines offers “single vineyard” or “cru-designated” wines.

 

Alfredo is also called the “father of Arneis” as in 1967 he invested a lot of time to rediscover and understand this nearly-lost variety. Today Arneis is the most famous white wine from Roero area, north of Barolo. Setting such a fine example with Arneis, even fellow vintners as far away those on the west coast of the United States now are cultivating and producing Arneis!

Barolo DOCG Rocche di Castiglione 2017 / From one of the most important cru in Castiglione Falletto, a superb interpretation made by Vietti. From vines aged nearly 50 years, one month of maceration on the skins, followed by thirty months in large casks. Fragrances of small black fruits, blackberry and blueberry, mentholated touches, black pepper. The mouth is taut, dense with tasty tannins. Mentholated trace in the aftertaste. 100 points

 Tess Murray / Sommelier, Pro (Australia)  tasted  2 wines  from  Vietti . In a tasting of  28 wines 

“1990 Barolo Cannubi Boschis by Luciano Sandrone. The vintage 1990 marks the beginning of a new era in Italian wine production. Modernisation and new innovative producers made their final breakthrough in this outstanding vintage. Hot and dry summer with cool night time temperature created wines of high quality and perfect phenolic ripeness. The third good vintage in a row in Piedmont!
Luciano Sandrone is one of the heroes of the Italian wine renaissance having contributed significantly to the modernization of Piedmont wines. Sandrone bought his first vineyard from the Cannubi hill in 1978. It was tiny in size - less than a hectare - but large enough to start lifting Sandrone on to the Piedmont wine map. 1990 was a successful vintage for the single vineyard Barolo Cannubi Boschis.
Developed, glossy medium-deep browning colour. The nose is lifted and nicely maturing; great expression of tar and roses, roasted and earthy notes. The mouth-feel is silky and smooth, firmed attractively by ripe tannin and refreshing acidity. This wine is harmonious and evolved today but no doubt will keep and improve for another decade.

“Vietti Barolo Riserva 2007 / Dark garnet red with almost black core. Rich and complex nose with Marasca cherries, plums and prunes, blackberries and sweet elderberries, balmy spices and hints of dark chocolate in the background. On the palate excellent weight and length, rich taste with fine acidity and balanced tannins, mature fruit. A wonderful wine with excellent tension on the palate and a promising future. 97 points”
