A perfumed and vibrant expression of Nebbiolo from Vietti. This has classic rose petal, cherry and tobacco character, wrapped up in a package that's intense and powerful, yet still approachable while Barolo wines are still sleeping in the cellar. Incredibly, the Perbacco is made almost entirely of Barolo designated fruit, with some also coming from Barbaresco. A superb value for wine of this calibre.

Overview

Grape

Nebbiolo

Its Origins

They made wine here back in the 1800s, but it was not until 1919 that Mario Vietti turned the family farm to viticulture and Vietti labels first appeared on the Italian market. The winery grew through the 1950’s, when new export markets opened and Mario’s daughter and son in law Alfredo Currado pioneered what was later to become a defining regional idea - single vineyard Barolo and Barbaresco. Today Vietti remain a towering name, with a portfolio occupying the top tier in most Piedmontese categories - particularly their profoundly important expressions of Cru Barolo. But history will also remember Vietti and Alfredo Currado for something quite different: the survival of the Arneis variety. It was Currado who almost single-handedly revived this hitherto ignored and abused grape and, appreciating its inherent qualities, not only persuaded others but led from the front to create the first, the most beautiful and still the most classic examples of what is now enshrined as the Roero Arneis DOCG.
