Winemaking: The grapes are selected from small vineyards spread in the Barolo region. The vines are between 9 and 42 years old, planted in a clay-limestone soil. Plants are trained with guyot method, with an average density of roughly 4500 units per hectare. All the different crus are vinified and aged separately with slightly different processes to underline the singular characteristics of each parcel and terroir. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel with daily cap submersion for extraction of flavor and color.

Aging: The wine is aged for roughly 30 months in oak casks and barriques; all parcels are then carefully blended before bottling.

Producers notes

The Vietti family has been producing wine in Castiglione Falletto in the heart of Le Langhe in Piedmont for five generations, with 33 estate vineyards located across all 11 communes designated for the cultivation and product1ion of Barolo, plus Roero for Arneis and Agliano Asti for Barbera and Moscato.

In 2016 Vietti was purchased by the American Krause family, however current generation winemaker Luca Currado-Vietti continues to direct the Vietti Estate meticulously, together with his wife Elena Penna-Currado, to produce some of the finest and most representative wines of Le Langhe.

Luca’s late father Alfredo was often referred to as the “father of Arneis” since in 1967 he invested a great deal of time and resources in rediscovering and understanding this almost extinct variety. Today Arneis is one of the most famous white wines of the region and 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of this historic renaissance.
