Average critic rating : 95.0 points



A beautiful purity of fruit to this young Barolo with ripe strawberries, citrus, flowers and spice. Full body, integrated tannins and a long finish. Need another two or three years to soften. James Suckling. April, 2015.



The 2011 Barolo Brunate is a wine of enormous pedigree, although it does not fully reach the aspiring heights of the 2010 and 2009 vintages immediately before it. Those wines set the bar so high, you need to settle for this wine that is a masterpiece in its own right. It offers deep, dark intensity with generous tones of ripe fruit, blackberry and red currant. Background notes of rosemary, cherry cola and licorice add vitality and focus. There is a subtle touch of softness in the mouth that is followed by firm tannins. |||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
