Reviews

  • "91 points. The Vietti winery has 15 vineyard crus at its disposal now. This allows for enormous flexibility in winemaking. The 2014 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco is an easy-drinking but sophisticated Nebbiolo that could pass for a base Barolo. This wine sees fruit sourced from Fiasco, Bussia, Fossati, Bricco delle Viole and Ravera di Monteforte. The bouquet delivers great intensity with an authentic display of dark fruit, spice and licorice." (Wine Advocate)
  • "90 points. A vibrant, lively style, with firm tannins underscoring cherry, raspberry, earth and tobacco flavors. Balanced and juicy, showing a touch of oak spice on the finish. Decant now or age for a few years. Drink now through 2023. 3,400 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
