Vietti
Vietti is among the most esteemed producers in Barolo, releasing no fewer than six different bottlings of each vintage. The estate's history can be tracked back to the 19th Century, but they only bottled wines under their own name since the beginning of the 20th century. Alfredo Currado also called the "father of Arneis" (for his rediscovery of the nearly-lost varietal) grew Vietti in to one of the top-level producers in Piemonte and was pivotal in the early export of its products to the USA market. Alfredo was also one of the first to make wines from single plots (such as Brunate, Rocche and Villero), which was a radical concept at the time, a move that followed what Burgundian winemakers were doing. Today virtually every vintner making Barolo and Barbaresco wines offers 'single vineyard', 'cru-designated' wines. Sadly Alfredo Currado - one of Piedmont's pioneers - passed away in April, 2010, but he would no doubt be proud of his son Luca's achievements since he took over.

The vineyards that make up the Vietti holdings are some of the finest in Piedmont; Le Coste, Liste, Bricco Boschis, Ginestra, Rocchettevino, Ciabot Berton and Bussia. The winery is an elite producer who has made very serious, 100 point rated Barolos, outstanding Barberas, and the consistently excellent Barolo 'Normale' called Castiglione. The wines come from Castiglione Falletto vineyards in the hearth of the Barolo zone where the soils have unique, sandy-calcareous qualities. Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been adorned with labels that are specially-designed original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silkscreens & linocuts) inspired by the wined of that particular vintage.
