Vietti's entry level Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne (signifying the three different vineyards that the wine is taken from), is a brilliant example from one of the best producers of Barbera in the world. From mostly young vines in Asti (although a portion of the single vineyard 'La Crena' goes into this wine and those vines were planted in 1947!), Vietti uses a number of different vessels for ageing (stainless steel, big vat, small barrel), which adds complexity to the wine.

After its malolactic fermentation in small wood casks and a year in botte grande, the totally unfiltered 2017 Barbera d'Alba Tre Vigne shows up as soft, immediate and rich, with nice little chocolate notes around the borders. Impressively, the various parcels of vines for this wine are all in the middle of the prestigious Barolo appellation. The word around the estate is that 2016 was a better vintage, but this was an attractive expression in itself and would be a hearty companion to any hearty pasta dish. About 28,000 bottles were made.
