Vietti Barolo Lazzarito 1995
This extreme "modernist" style of Barolo, pumped up in the toasted oak department, is packed with mocha and roasted coffee bean character. Delivers ripe fruit and a full mouthfeel accented by dark chocolate on the smoky, delectably supple finish. - WS90
The history of the Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th Century. Only at the beginning of the 20th century, however, did the Vietti name become a winery offering its own wines in bottle.
Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been dressed with specially-designed original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silkscreens, linocuts) inspired by the wine of that particular vintage.
Vietti wines come from Castiglione Falletto wineyards, in the hearth of the Barolo zone. The qualities of sandy-calcareous soil in this area gives a unique tannic heritage with very elegant olfactory sensations.
