Vietti is a renowned winery in Piedmont, Italy, known for producing high-quality Barolo and Barbaresco red wines. Founded by Alfredo Currado in the 1960s, Vietti has vineyards in prestigious areas such as Barolo, Barbaresco, Monforte d'Alba, and Rocche. They cultivate various grape varieties including Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, and Arneis. Vietti's wines are admired for their elegance, structure, and complexity, reflecting the unique terroir of Piedmont. Their Barolo and Barbaresco wines often require extended aging to reveal their best flavors. Vietti also produces other red, white, and sparkling wines, as well as Grappa. They are celebrated for their commitment to quality and traditional winemaking practices.

The grapes are selected from the historical cru Brunate, located in La Morra, planted 4,600 plants per hectare. The vines are 45 years old and grown using the Guyot system. Grapes are gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel for 17 days at 30-32° C (86-90° F), with pumping of the juice over grape skins done by both machine and hand, followed by malolactic fermentation. Brunate in La Morra is one of the most famous “crus” of all Barolo area; this vintage is particularly interesting because it’s very easy to recognize the “terroir” in the wine.

Description: intense ruby red. Dry, with generous body, harmoniously balanced and velvety texture. Classic, ripe red-fruit, long finish, rich and very elegant. Spices, violet, plums and intense tar, very typical for the Brunate vine-yard.

RP 95 Points from The Wine Advocate
"From one of the region’s most celebrated vineyards, the 2009 Barolo Brunate lavishes on smoky, granite and mineral notes that make this wine absolutely irresistible. Even the drawing of a snail on the label seems to hammer home one obvious point: This wine is built for longer cellar aging. Its rich texture, velvety feel and firm structure are guarantees that it will become increasingly elegant and finessed with time. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.

If forced to inhabit a desert island that only served the wines of a single producer, I would want Luca Currado to be that supplier. He excels at everything he does from his castle perch at the heart of Castiglione Falletto. Despite the difficult 2009 season, his wines remain extraordinary. In fact, they are among the best I tasted from the vintage." - Tasted on Jun 28, 2013 by Monica Larner

這款酒是由位於La Morra的Brunate葡萄園的葡萄釀製而成,每公頃種植4600棵葡萄樹。這些葡萄樹年齡為45年,採用Guyot方式種植。葡萄經過輕柔壓碎後,在不銹鋼槽中以30-32°C(86-90°F)的溫度發酵,並通過機械和人工方式進行浸漬,然後進行蘋果酸乳酸發酵。Brunate在La Morra是巴羅洛區域最著名的"crus"之一;這個年份特別有趣,因為在葡萄酒中非常容易識別出"terroir"(土壤風味)。

如果被迫在一個只供應單一生產商的葡萄酒的荒島上生活,我希望Luca Currado能成為那個供應商。他在卡斯蒂廖內法萊托的城堡高處做的一切都表現出色。儘管2009年的季節困難,他的葡萄酒仍然非凡。事實上,它們是我在該年份品鑒中嘗過的最好的葡萄酒之一。" - Monica Larner於2013年6月28日品評
