Vietti, Barolo, Monvigliero 2020

Vietti

Case Format: 6x75cl

Drink To: 2045

The “Monvigliero” hillside vineyard has long been considered the most significant cru in Verduno and one of the most valuable in the entire Barolo winegrowing region. Limestone- and clay-rich soil with Marls of Saint Agatha present, and a south/south-western exposure. Altitude around 240 m asl; the average age of the vines is 44 years and there is a density of around 4500 plants per hectare.

Ruby-red colour. The nose is intense yet delicate, with notes of ripe red berries and fine spices. The unmistakably elegant hints of wild strawberry, rose and cherry are striking on the palate. The tannins are rounded, silky and persistent. Every ounce of the harmony and balance of this cru⁠—one of the Barolo region’s most special⁠—stands out. The finish reveals light, fresh and fine spiced notes. All the qualities that set Barolo Monvigliero apart lie in its aromatic complexity and depth of flavour.

CRITIC REVIEWS

Aldo Fiordelli

Monvigliero is one of the most elegant crus from Verduno, which is one of the coolest areas in Barolo, producing wines of rare grace. Viettis 2020 is a delight, characteristic of the year, full of cinnamon, violet, raspberry and vibrant depth. Zesty acidity seamlessly integrates with velvety, light but savoury tannins, and the wine only thins out a little on the finish.

Monica Larner

A relatively new departure for Vietti, the 2020 Barolo Monvigliero is soft and delicate with pretty floral aromas, dried iris, powdered spice and a hint of tar or road pavement. The inaugural vintage was 2018. Made with 60% whole-cluster fruit during fermentation, the wine has a moment of tartness, punchy highlights, sweet grenadine and cranberry jelly. It ages in large oak casks for 24 months. Production is 6,754 bottles.
