Winemaker's Notes

Ruby purple color with ripe red cherry aromas with hints of mineral and vanilla. A dry, medium bodied red wine with refreshing acidity (making it perfect to pair with food) and soft tannins, the Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne is well balanced with good integration of oak, good complexity and a finish of more red cherries.

Antipasti, rich salads, grilled seasoned vegetables, hearty soups, pastas or with breaded veal, pork, chicken with light sauces.

Critical Acclaim

"("our business card," noted Currado, who produces 40,000 to 44,000 bottles of this wine and ships most of them to the U.S.; he began bottling the wine in a series of installments last spring): Deep ruby-red. Distinctly blacker on the nose than the Tre Vigne, offering rather powerful scents of black cherry and crushed blackberry sweetened by caramel oak. Plush, strong and deep, with black fruit and licorice flavors complicated by oaky torrefaction (the wine was in small barrels until November of 2012, then spent a few months in big casks before being moved to stainless steel to await bottling). Distinctly more tannic and clenched than the Tre Vigne and less exclusively about fruit. "

"Fresh and rich with juicy plu and black raspberry; clean, balanced and vivid; lively and bright with balance and gobs of charm. "

A wine that gets better over time from opening. Great food wine with nice acidity and spiciness. Medium bodied with lots of bright red cherry,raspberry fruit. Finish with savory spice and minerals is refreshing if a bit short.Would buy again.Also has a slight bitter flavor that those who love Italian wines will enjoy, others, not so much.

Just finished 2nd bottle last night. Paired with Lasagna dinner. Smooth, fruity, and just the right grip. A little short on the finish, but over all a great everyday dinner wine. Have bought Vietti wines many times, and never dissapoints. Will stock more soon.

Style: Light & Fruity
Strong Blueberry smell and taste. Light and fruity. Short sugary finish. More like a dessert wine with sweet tooth visions.
