(1558212) If you're looking for the next blue chip property in Barolo, then look no further than Vietti. Luca Currado, of Vietti, has taken his family's winery to the very top of the Barolo pyramid. i t A l Y : bA rolo Tr ailbla Z ers Fro M T he sT ar T : v ie TT i T railblazers since the start, Vietti was at the forefront of bottling single crus back in 1961 with the first Vietti Rocche Barolo. When the 2010 vintage scores hit, Vietti had achieved rare 99s and 100s from Antonio Galloni, and this was quickly followed up by the 100-point Wine Advocate score for their 2007 Riserva. Now we are presented with the 2012 vintage, one in which Vietti has set itself apart with a number of Barolos that have transcended the soft-natured and easy-drinking qualities of the year. Instead, they have delivered an outstanding set of single-vineyard wines that will stand the test of time and continue the legacy, which was started over 45 years ago. ✦ Ge T T H e iNS i D e S COOP O N S P e C i AL Offe RS A ND Wi N e e ve NTS Facebook at • Twitter at • Instagram at
