Vietti, Nebbiolo "Perbacco" Langhe, Piedmont, Italy 2020
Vietti, Nebbiolo Perbacco Langhe is made from grapes coming from different vineyards of Nebbiolo, most of which are included in the Barolo, and from the last couple of vintages, from the Barbaresco area.
Alcoholic fermentation lasts around 3-4 weeks. Each parcel is processed and aged separately until when they select the ones will be included for the blend of Perbacco or the ones that will keep aging to become Barolo Castiglione.
Total aging is approximately 2 years. After malolactic done both in barrique and big Slavonian casks, the wine keeps aging in oak for 2 years. Blending in steel tanks to follow prior bottling.
Perbacco Nebbiolo offers up generous fruit along with menthol, spices and hard candy, showing notable intensity while retaining an essentially mid-weight style. Strong, intense and powerful when young, complex and elegant with age.
Pair with hearty stew, wild game, roasted red meats and sharp, aged cheeses.
