Viberti La Gemella Barbera d’Alba DOC

Last born in the Viberti house, her name is a dedication to Maria (twin by birth), wife of Giovanni Viberti, a woman of humble origins who made a fundamental contribution to the growth of the company and her family. Cook for over 50 years of the family inn, alias Buon Padre, tenacious and severe mother, and great passionate of Barbera, in 2004 observed how many of the most beautiful vineyards of Barbera had been substituted with the variety Nebbiolo, more profitable grape than the same Barbera considered for years the “wine of the poor”, thanks to a marked acidity and a difficult drinkability. The project stems from the intuition of Claudio, the youngest and newest son in the management of the family business, The plant of a new vineyard with a higher plant density is born. The goal, then achieved over time is a wine with a great concentration, a particular amiability and a nose with a clear and intense red fruit. The acidity that accompanies the concentration makes the wine extremely elegant and fascinating.

Sustainable farming.
