Tasting Notes

Aromatics of red fruits and rose petal are classic for this grape. On the palate, there are red cherries and red currants along with spices. This is medium weight and has a mix of rounder tannins on the attack and some youthful, drying tannins on the finish.


Located in the heart of the Langhe hills, at the top of the village of Castiglione Falletto, the Vietti wine cellar was founded in the late 1800s by Carlo Vietti. Although they had been making wine for 4 generations, the turning point came in the 1960s when Luciana Vietti married winemaker and art connoisseur Alfredo Currado, whose innovations – from the production of one of the first Barolo crus (Rocche di Castiglione – 1961), through the single-varietal vinification of Arneis (1967) to the invention of Artist Labels (1974) – made him both symbol and an architect of some of the most significant revolutions of the Piedmont region.

Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been dressed with specially-designed original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silk screens, linocuts) inspired by the wine of that particular vintage. The number of labels printed is the same as the number of bottles produced, with the first hundred labels are signed by the Artist. Each work is only used once, just for the wine of that vintage.

The grapes for this wine are grown in various selected vineyard sites mostly in the Barolo area and a minor part in Barbaresco. The vineyard's soil is made of marl (limestone in combination with clay). Aged for 2 years in Slovenian cask for 16-18 months. The name Perbacco stands for “for bacchus”.
