About

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.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Designation: Langhe D.O.C. Nebbiolo

Grapes: 100% Nebbiolo

Winemaking: The grapes for this wine are grown in various selected vineyards sites mostly in the Barolo area and a minor part in Barbaresco. The vineyards soil is made of marl (limestone in combination with clay). Alcoholic fermentation lasts around 3/4 weeks at controlled temperature (28°-32°). Then we have the malolactic fermentation in steel tanks. Each parcel is processed and aged separately until when they select the ones will be included for the blend of Perbacco or the ones that will keep ageing to become Barolo Castiglione (excluding the parcels from Barbaresco).

Aging: Total ageing is approximately 16/18 months. 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.

Blend : Nebbiolo (100%)
ABV : 14%
Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2027

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
