The grapes utilized in the Tre Vigne Barbera are delicately selected from vineyards within Agliano Terme, one of which is also used for Vietti’s single-vineyard La Crena,  as well as other villages around the rolling hills of Asti. After harvest, the grapes undergo a cold maceration in stainless steel, then are fermented for approximately 2 weeks, with daily pump-overs. The wine then macerates for another week, following which it is racked and transferred into oak for malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged in a combination of barriques, Slovenian casks, and steel for roughly 18 months. 

Aromatically the wine is perfumed with notes of cherry and sweet spices. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with a charming amount of acidity, balanced with the utilization of oak and lingering flavors of cherries. 


Winemake notes:

Ruby red color with mineral and vanilla notes. Medium-bodied, dry wine with a crisp acidity (perfect for the whole meal) and soft tannins. This Barbera is very well balanced, with a good complexity and a red cherry finish.

Goes well with appetizers, rich salads, grilled seasonal vegetables, soups, stews, pasta, veal, pork, chicken with light sauces.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Notes of ripe plums and blackberries with dark spicy chocolate, moist bark and wet asphalt. Juicy and racy on the palate with medium to full body and vivid acidity. Tense with dusty tannins and a seamless, lengthy finish. Drink or hold." James Suckling (Aug 2023)
