Viberti Buon Padre Barolo DOCG

Historical label of the Viberti family, it represents the essence of Barolo in its most classical and traditional expression. Born in 1923 by Cavalier Antonio Viberti, the wine was marketed under the name of the family restaurant: Il Buon Padre. Served exclusively on the tables of the inn, shortly after the end of the Second World War, Antonio began selling to the patrons and customers of the inn itself. Born from the union of Nebbiolo grapes from the vineyards of La Volta and Bricco delle Viole, today this label at a distance of almost a century, is the result of the skillful assemblage of 10 different crus, included between the municipalities of Barolo, Monforte d’Alba and Verduno. The grapes of different origins are harvested and vinified separately. The wines produced are aged in vats and barrels of French and Slavonian oak, which are not roasted exclusively; then the various wines are assembled and a few weeks after bottling. The style is characterized by a fresh acidity that comes from the highest vineyards, extremely traditional aromas and an impressive structure, but with soft and elegant tannins.

Sustainable farming.
