After alcoholic fermentation in steel tanks lasting 24 days at a temperature of between 28 and 32 degrees Celsius, the wine macerated on the skins for a total of 16 days. It was then transferred immediately into small barrels for malolactic fermentation and into bigger oak casks for further aging.
99 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Vietti 2013 Barolo Riserva Villero is a stunning wine, full of life, energy and beautiful complexity. This vintage opens in such a graceful manner, tickling the senses like a feather. With time, that initial softness begins to rise, and the wine grows in aromatic momentum and textural importance to take on magnificent fruit weight. It is soft, caressing and long. Tasted seven years after the harvest, this Riserva is expertly integrated with vibrant primary fruit, tangy acidity and non-intrusive tannins. These elements that make up the grand totality of the wine are carefully contained and chiseled down to a most elegant and beautiful common denominator. Drink after 2024.
