"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."
