A gift to the Gods! Strong, intense and powerful, this Nebbiolo is a stellar example of the fruits of Piedmont, with a nose full of truffle, cherry, tar and plum and the flavour to match. “Perbacco” translates to “For Bacchus” – this is Vietti’s offering to the Wine God. For such an offering, it would want to be good, and thankfully, it is! Enjoy it with hearty winter stews, roasted red meats and sharp aged cheeses.
Winemaking - Vinification of grapes coming from different vineyards of Nebbiolo all included in the Barolo area. Alcoholic fermentation lasts around 3/4 weeks with a temperature of 28°/32°C. Each parcel is processed and aged separately until when they select which ones will be included for the blend of Perbacco or the ones that will keep ageing to become Barolo Castiglione.
Ageing - Total ageing is approximately 2 years. After malolactic done both in barrique and big Slavonian casks, the wine keeps ageing in oak for 2 years. Blending in steel tanks to follow prior bottling.
Alc/vol - 13.83%
'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 liquorice.'
