Vietti Dolcetto d’Alba Tre Vigne 2006

Vietti Barbera d'Alba Scarrone Vigna Vecchia 2005

I listened to an interesting podcast about the wines of Vietti on Grape Radio a few weeks, so when I saw this yesterday I decided to buy a bottle.

A nose showing dark cherries and leather, liquorice, with a touch of cream and some dusty cedar. Quite a dry and savoury palate, red cherries and dry spices, which in itself doesn’t really convey the charm of the wine, because its beauty lies in the lovely lovely tannins, chewy but fine, with nothing blocky or coarse or green. Moderately acidic, finishing dryly, a super food wine. Could probably do with another year or two.
