Offers up generous fruit along with menthol, spices and hard candy, showing notable intensity while retaining an essentially mid-weight style. Strong, intense and powerful when young, complex and elegant with the ageing. Food Pairing: Hearty stew, wild game, roasted red meats and sharp, aged cheeses.

Wine SpectatorWhite pepper, cherry, tea, juniper and tobacco flavors dissolve into a swath of tannins that leave a grip on the finish. Though elegant, this feels more like a Barolo in profile and structure. Best from 2020 through 2030.

Wine AdvocateThe Vietti winery has 15 vineyard crus at its disposal now. This allows for enormous flexibility in winemaking. The 2014 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco is an easy-drinking but sophisticated Nebbiolo that could pass for a base Barolo. This wine sees fruit sourced from Fiasco, Bussia, Fossati, Bricco delle Viole and Ravera di Monteforte. The bouquet delivers great intensity with an authentic display of dark fruit, spice and licorice.
