Vietti 2005 Barolo Lazzarito Piedmont

Vietti winemaker and industry visionary Alfredo Currado passed away this year, leaving the estate in the capable hands of his son, Luca. The Nebbiolo grapes used to make this Barolo are sourced from 39-year-old vines in the Lazzarito Vineyard in Serralunga. This wine is aged for over two years, first in French oak barrels, then in ones of Slovenian oak, both of which add to the grapes’ sweet blackberry fruit and accents of tobacco and menthol.
