About The Wine
The Vietti Perbacco Langhe Nebbiolo is made "For Bacchus", the Roman god of wine, but thankfully we're allowed to partake in this wine full of vitality.
You're greeted with a ripe and fruity nose that tells you this will be more in the fun than serious spectrum. The fruit often comes from vineyards which have been "declassified", that is the grapes aren't good enough for the higher-priced wines, but the quality is over and above at the lower price. There's spice, confectionery, red fruits, and some floral notes. The palate is elegant and with surprising length.
Punching well above its weight, the Perbacco is a Langhe Nebbiolo that you really must try.
About Cantina Vietti
Cantina Vietti has a storied history that began with its establishment in the late 1800s by Carlo Vietti, in the hills of the Langhe subregion of Piemonte.
The winery took a wonderful turn when, in the 1960s, Luciana Vietti married winemaker and art connoisseur Alfredo Currado, who not only helped revolutionise the production of their finest Barolo crus, but also championed single-varietal Arneis, and the use of labels created by different artists.
In 2016, the estate was sold to Krause Holdings, and this injection of capital has allowed Luciana and Alfredo's son Luca and his wife Elena to acquire some new premium crus and plan for the future.
