The wine

Tre Vigne is a wine that tells the story of Italian gastronomic traditions at the table with the style of the great aristocratic label. A wine that is satisfying and rewarding thanks to the freshness and subtle softness of Barbera, but also due to emotion and depth for those seeking something more, thanks to the ageing and selection of the grapes. A great award-winning wine that reconciles Piedmont with a modern and international flavour. 

For four generations the Vietti family has been producing wines in Castiglione Falletto, a small medieval village situated in the centre of one of the most propitious areas of the Langhe for the cultivation of vines, the "Barolo area". In 1957 Alfredo Currado married Luciana Vietti and since 1960, after the death of his father-in-law, the family business continued, focusing production more and more towards high quality and positioning the winery among the best in the Langhe, starting since then to export its products to important foreign markets.

What does this wine taste like?

The colour is a surprising vigorous and intense red, with slightly purple shades. The bouquet reveals aromas of blackberry, raspberry and blueberry combined with mineral tinges. On the palate it reveals a strong but not overbearing body, therefore very refined, with soft tannins, moderate acidity and exceptional balance. The vanilla notes, from bouquet to palate, follow one another like a well embroidered whisper.

Drinking and storing

Serve between 16ºC and 18ºC

Food pairing

Perfect in combination with grilled dishes, but also excellent with a pizza or to enhance a good dish of pasta with light sauces. A Barbera that has it all: conviviality but also great, amazing class.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

Beautifully rich and layered, the Vietti 2019 Barbera d'Alba Tre Vigne meets all its marks. The wine offers pleasure, softness, concentration and an easy-drinking style that could accompany and enhance any of your favorite foods, from pasta to grilled meat. It ends with richness and a sweet note that lands softly onto the palate. Some 35,000 bottles were made.

Vineyards

Tre Vigne is the winery’s most ready and snappy Barbera. As the name says, it derives from three Langhe crus, which make up the blend. These are Castiglione Falletto, Monforte d'Alba and La Morra, that is, three of the most renowned municipalities for Barolo. The vineyards are between 25 and 40 years old: ripe rows, therefore, which give a full, complex and multi-faceted Barbera, in short, anything but the basic, simple, young wine it might seem.
