Pale ruby color, slight garnet hue, with intense aromas of ripe Bing cherries, tea leaves and rose petals. With firm, ripe tannins, crisp acidity and feminine and round structure. Excellent balance, integration and a long, lingering finish.

Based in Castiglione Falletto in Piedmont's Langhe wine region, the Vietti winery is
owned by the family's fourth generation. In 1919 Mario Vietti made the first Vietti
labeled wines. By mid-century Alfredo Currado married Mario's daughter and made a
name for Vietti's single vineyard Barbera and Barolo. Alfredo was one of the first to
select and vinify grapes from single vineyards, a radical concept at the time. He also
put the varietal Arneis on the wine map and is recognized as the father of Arneis. In
1990, Luca Vietti joined the family business as winemaker after working at California's
Simi Winery, Opus One, Long Vineyards and Bordeaux's Mouton-Rothschild. His
innovative winemaking utilizes a unique combination of the modern and traditional. He eliminated equipment that
measures acid and tannin levels in favor of a more intuitive approach. Vietti organically farms more than 25 single
vineyards with vines up to 90 years of age. In 1970, the Viettis began an original artwork label program. This series
was exhibited at New York's MoMA in 1996. The last six editions have been dedicated entirely to the Villero Riserva
