Vietti Nebbiolo 'Perbacco' 2019

Product description

Medium deep ruby color. Quite intense and generous fruity nose (red berries) along with floral and spicy notes, a hint of menthol and hard candy. On the pallet medium bodied, showing notable intensity while retaining an essentially mid-weight style. Strong, intense and quite powerful when young, evolving to a complex and elegant, very well balanced wine with ageing. The tannins are harmoniously integrated in the fruit structure of the wine. Long lasting aftertaste with good freshness.

91 - Wilfred Wong

The 2019 Vietti Langhe brings Nebbiolo to the everyday meal table as an affordable luxury. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers aromas and flavors of fresh red fruits and some blackberries. Enjoy its al dente finish with a lightly-seasoned, oven-baked Porchetta.

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco shows a rusty or earthy side that feels more pronounced in this vintage. This wine represents an assembly of all the wine that is left over after the final blend of the Barolo Castiglione is confirmed (at year three). This wine sees two years in large oak casks, but this 40,000-bottle release hits the market more than one year earlier than the Barolo. With a silky, lean texture, Perbacco is a good introduction to Nebbiolo.
