2020 saw excellent sugar levels and healthy grapes across the Piedmont in all grape varieties including Moscato.

The grapes are selected from small vineyards located in Castiglione Tinella. The vineyards are planted with 4,500 vines per hectare, which are almost 40 years old. The grapes are crushed, pressed and naturally clarified. The must is kept without sulfites in a cold storage, at low temperature in order to prevent fermentation. Before the bottling, yeast is added and the temperature is increased to 12°-14° C.

Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel pressured tanks to preserve natural CO2 from the fermentation. The fermentation is stopped at 5% Alc. by reducing again the temperature. There is no malolactic fermentation to preserves acidity, varietal fruit character and freshness. The wine is held in stainless steel tanks until bottling.


One of the most important and well known producers in the Piedmont, Vietti are trendsetters who are partially responsible for the success of the region today thanks to their focus on single vineyard wines back in the 1950's.

The first Vietti labelled vintage was released in 1919 although the family had been involved in winemaking for generations prior to that. Farmers, grape growing was only a percentage of the family income.

In 1952, Alfredo Currado (Luciana Vietti’s husband) decided to focus the wine production on quality and started making single vineyards wines and increasing the production level in the vineyard and winery. This focus on quality allowed the Vietti winery to grow into one of the top-level producers in Piemonte and was one of the first wineries to export its products to the US. His focus on single vineyard was copied by most Barolo and Barbaresco producers today and is the reason single vineyard wines exist today.
