Commitment and vision, culture and passion. These keywords have contributed to the growth of the Vietti winery and brand, universally recognized today among the best Italian wine labels. The path of quality is traced, thanks to the respect for tradition and careful experimentation, where man and earth have always been able to dialogue.
In 2016, the Krause Family purchased Vietti. Once again, it is man’s intuitions that make the difference. Kyle Krause decided to extend the winemaking properties with a new, renowned crus in the denomination of Barolo and Barbaresco. In the Colli Tortonesi area, thanks to the purchase of vineyards, the production of Timorasso had its beginning.
The Crena vineyard is located near the village of Agliano Terme, in a south-facing exposure, with a total surface of about 6 hectares. The grapevines are planted using the Guyot trellis system at an average density of 4.800 plants.
After a short cold maceration, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks for about two weeks. During this period, many mechanical punching downs, délestage, and open-air pumping overs were executed. After this, the wine macerates for another week on its skins and is then racked in oak barrels for malolactic fermentation.
Intense, deep ruby color. Pronounced concentrated aroma of ripe raspberry and red cherry fruit, combined with spicy and mineral notes and a touch of vanilla and toast. It is full-bodied on the palate, quite rich, with lush fruit well balanced with the acidity, good integration of oak, and a long lingering aftertaste.
