Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @winefolly - R you trying to get me in trouble - Patience is most impt and sometimes I am not too patient but love always wins out #SommChat

Madeline Puckette _@WineFolly @vietti_vino phew! Glad to hear! Patience + Love = good wine biz #SommChat

Madeline Puckette _@WineFolly @KeeperColl @vietti_vino #SommChat Moscato d'Asti, is this your largest production & revenue? or Barolo wines?

KeeperCollection _@KeeperColl @vietti_vino you have extensive Cru vineyards holdings in #Barolo how many different Crus do you have? #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl we have access to 15 different Crus, started with great grandfather who had good vision to go outside of Castiglione #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl GGF was a visionary and ahead of his time to start to invest in greatest position of vineyards in #Barolo Region #SommChat

ormiga _@ormiga am here #SommChat @KeeperColl @mcontrol @ridesmith @stephaniemiskew @vietti_vino @vinustrip @winetonight

KeeperCollection _@KeeperColl @vietti_vino how are your crus used for UR #Nebbiolo Perbacco and Castiglione Barolo? #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl Crus R vinified separately after aging 30 mths in casks, make selection of Crus that will blend for these two #wines #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl Parbacco could be labeled as #Barolo but we choose to call #Langhe #Nebbiolo #SommChat

About Damn Wine _@aboutdamnwine @vietti_vino @KeeperColl what is the avg age of the vines for your awesome Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera? #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @aboutdamnwine 4 #Barolo & #barbaresco, avg age is 46-48 yrs old For #Barbera D'alba, one vineyard is 100 yrs old …. #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @aboutdamnwine the 100 year old #Barbera D'alba Vineyard is bottles separately as Scarrone Vigna Vecchia #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso _@demilove @KeeperColl - How would you describe the differences between Nebbiolo and Barbera, styleisticaly (sp?) - #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @demilove #Barbera is fruitier and mineral driven w/ gr. acidity #nebbiolo is > full-bodied, complex, expresses the terroir #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @demilove #Nebbiolo is very floral often w/ rose notes,can also can have undertones of earth, wood, chocolate depending on terroir #SommChat

Alfonso Cevola _@italianwineguy WELCOME @KeeperColl @vietti_vino #SommChat

KeeperCollection _@KeeperColl @vietti_vino do the different Crus age differently for drinking? #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl #Brunate usually drinks sooner #Lazzarito, Rocche di Castiglione, and Ravera are all good 4 aging depending on vintage #SommChat

KeeperCollection _@KeeperColl @vietti_vino Please explain the importance of #Barbera to the history of Vietti as a quality #winery #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl we always believed #Barbera can be gr8 #wine & used part of our most expensive land to plant this instead of #Nebbiolo #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl Scarrone Vigna Vecchia & Vigna Scarrone R planted N heart of trad. #Barolo #Nebbiolo vineyards which is very rare #SommChat

Madeline Puckette _@WineFolly @vietti_vino @KeeperColl #SommChat does it behave differently above the "nebbia?"

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @winefolly behind the “nebbia” allows for colder nights which makes the #Barbera very fruity and rich and deep and good acidity #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @WineFolly it also has longer growing season at this height and produces a bright #Barbera #SommChat

Madeline Puckette _@WineFolly @vietti_vino Oh that's surprising! bright! So, definitely age-worthy? And tannin? RE: Barbera #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @WineFolly our 2 #Barbera R powerful 2 allow 4 aging particularly b/c planted N gr. exposure & Soil 4 #Nebbiolo- is very rare #SommChat

KeeperCollection _@KeeperColl @vietti_vino Tell us about the 2011 Cru Rocche as it is 50th Anniversary for this wine & 1 of the 1st Crus of #Barolo #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl 2 celebrate 50 yrs #Rocche w/ Luca's father would have been much nicer. He was 1st 2 make Rocche 2 single Cru Bottle #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl this single bottling was a visionary idea and changed the interpretation of Terroir in #Barolo Region #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso _@demilove @KeeperColl - Do you think Nebbiolo/Barbera loses some of its individuality if it's blended from multiple vineyards? - #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @demilove tradition was 2 blend & still do in some cases - Single vineyard bottling certainly expresses the vineyard the soil etc. #SommChat

Sassodoro _@Sassodoro Wasn't Vietti involved in saving Arneis from near-extinction? Could you tell us about that? #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @Sassodoro Yes my FIL, Alfredo of #Vietti rescued #arneis from extinction - he was 1st to vinify #Arneis pure and dry -#SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @Sassodoro this was N 1967 & at that time no full vineyard of #Arneis existed and this created a new #wine & interest in #Arneis #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @Sassodoro by many Alfredo of #vietti is considered the father of #Arneis #SommChat

KeeperCollection _@KeeperColl @vietti_vino Tell us about your Vietti Arneis and what you think are good food parings with this #Wine #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl #Vietti #Arneis pairs well with #Fish #Shellfish white meat #oysters and gr. as #Aperitif - & #Asparagus & #Artichoke #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl to find a #wine to pair with #Asparagus and #Artichoke is not so easy EH? another reason #Vietti #Arneis is special #SommChat

Luca Currado _@vietti_vino @KeeperColl Braised #Meat #Game homemade #pasta #Mushrooms Aged #Cheese & #barbera w/ #Fish is very good #SommChat
