Vietti, Timorasso Derthona 2017Regular price $32.00 Save $-32.00
Vietti is a winery whose holdings feature among some of the most storied vineyards in Barolo. Hailing from the late 1800s when Carlo Vietti established his first cellar, the winery was bought in 2016 by an outside concern with an agreement in place that enables current winemakers Elena and Luca to elevate their game even more, buying crus they’d been studying for a long time. Their Timorasso Derthona is part of the resurrection of a white grape that almost went extinct in the 1980s, yet now is making a comeback across the Langhe. Shows aromas of flowers and honey, and bright yellow and green colors shine in this acidic wine, where pear and peach flavors float above a seam of fine mineral notes.
