Wine Advocate
Vietti, 2013 Vietti Barbaresco Masseria DOCG

"The 2013 Barbaresco Masseria is being released a bit earlier this year, but this is only relative because Vietti ages the wine one year longer than his peers. It sees a 30-day maceration period with submerged cap techniques. The fruit is also harvested a bit sweeter and softer on the vine. These methods account for the truly velvety and rich texture that characterize this beautifully opulent Barbaresco. It wraps thickly over the palate with dark fruit and spice flavors. On the Nebbiolo scale, this wine drinks more like a Barolo than a Barbaresco."

The grapes are harvested from a single site in Treiso. The vineyard has a southern exposure with a mix of clay and limestone in the soil. During the alcoholic fermentation, the must will remain for approximately 3 weeks in open-top stainless steel tanks with a temperature of 30°-32° degrees. Daily délestages, punching downs and open-air pumping overs are actioned daily.
