Vietti, Masseria, Barbaresco 2007

Vietti, Masseria, Barbaresco 2007
Vietti makes paradigms of Barolo, but standout Barbaresco too. Typical Neive style: good attack, invigorating and chewy. A richer, earthier style than Treiso’s lithe beauties or the marvels of balance made around the town of Barbaresco. 17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
