Vietti's 2011 Barbaresco Masseria is gorgeous. Floral and spiced notes meld into a core of rich, generous fruit in an ample, large-scaled Barbaresco built on pure resonance. The Masseria is vinified and aged like Vietti's single-vineyard Barolos, which is to say long fermentations, six months in French oak and two-plus years in cask. That, along with the warm vintage and broad shoulders of Neive yields a Barbaresco with distinct Barolo inflections. With time in the glass, the wine gains volume and breadth. Priced at half the level of Vietti's vineyard designate Barolos, the Masseria is a fabulous value relative to other wines of this pedigree. (Oct 2014) www.vinous.com Drink 2019-2036

The 2011 Barbaresco Masseria could be classified as a Riserva given the fact it sees one extra year of aging before its commercial release. In an effort to adhere to local tradition, the word Riserva is not used. The wine offers ample expressiveness with dark consistency and beautifully intense aromas of dark fruit, spice and toasted almond. It is aged in botte grande for 36 months.||I tasted 1,200 wines during my stay in Piedmont and can say without a doubt that no wine impressed me more than Vietti's 2007 Barolo Riserva Villero. I remember the wine vividly as if I had a glass in front of me now. In fact, I have not been able to shake the memory of the wine's profound beauty. It is etched deep into my tasting memory. Luca Currado is an immensely talented winemaker and I am absolutely convinced that this is the finest bottle he has made to date. It is the culmination of a career that is only partially complete, and this is great news for all of us who admire his work. It is a symbol of the promise to come. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015

The Vietti’s have tended vines in Piedmont for more than 150 years and are blessed with some of the region’s finest vineyard sites. Assiduous attention in the vineyards is key here and the estate was a pioneer in single-vineyard Barolo.“In short, there seems to be no end to this estate’s ambition. Frankly, I wish there were more wineries setting their sights on this level of quality.” Antonio Galloni
