Wine AdvocateDespite the deep concentration and richness of the 2017 Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne, the freshness is still there. The three vineyard parcels Vietti farms in Asti go into this wine of impressive depth. Yes, this was one of the hottest vintages in a decade for Barbera d'Asti, but it still shows more acidity than the estate's Barbera d'Alba. This wine is rustic and raw with plenty of structure. Originally planted in 1932 and 1935, they bought these vineyards in 1995 and replanted many in 1996, with fruit from the old vines going into their special La Crena selection. Some 35,000 bottles were made.
