Vietti “Monvigliero” Barolo 2018
2018 is the first vintage of the Cru Monvigliero produced by Vietti. The Monvigliero vineyard has not only the reputation for being the most important Cru in the village of Verduno, but also to be among the most prestigious ones in the whole Barolo region. The Monvigliero hill is exposed towards south–southeast; the parcel where Vietti grows the grapes for this wines is at about 320 meters a.s.l.. The soil is calcareous and clayey with Sant’Agata’s marls. The grapevines have an average age of about 50 years. Hand-picked Nebbiolo grapes were only partly destemmed before vinification in stainless steel tanks. 60% of the grapes were added to be vinified as “whole-cluster” with their stems. The wine aged for 24 months in large oak casks. It was bottled without filtration. This Barolo has a ruby red color and very delicate though intense aromas. It is very elegant on the palate with hints of strawberry, cherry and rose. The tannins are persistent, round and silky, and perfectly in harmony with the fruit and structure of the wine. It possesses a long lingering finish with fresh spicy notes. The inclusion of whole clusters will make Monvigliero especially long-lived. After patient cellaring, enjoy this with slow-cooked red meats, roasts, and wild game.
