About This Wine

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 8 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.

Wines of Piedmont

In the North-Western corner of Italy, with a backdrop of the visually stunning Alps, Piedmont is a great place to visit for wine tourism. It is also home to some of the most sought-after wines in the country.

Nebbiolo is the region’s most prestigious grape variety, a red variety not seen much in Australia. Wines made from this grape are powerful with remarkably high levels of tannins but a balancing acidity. The Piedmont region offers the grapes with a reliable autumn fog that provides a cooling effect which is particularly beneficial to the growth of Nebbiolo. This pre-harvest fog (“nebbia” in Italian) is actually where the grape’s name comes from. The fog is vital in that it prolongs the time spent on the vine and allows the grapes to achieve full ripeness.

The most famous examples of Nebbiolo come from the appellations (subregions) of Barolo and Barbaresco, known for their ability to age well, firm tannins and distinct smell of tar and roses. Barolo is a big tannic expression of Nebbiolo, while Barbaresco only about 15km away makes a more elegant style. Barolo wines are generally the more expensive of the two and are known to cellar for decades.

By volume however, Barbera is the most planted red grape in Piedmont. This grape makes a juicy, low tannin but high acidity easy-going red. Perhaps somewhat like a lighter style Shiraz.

While there are quite a few white varieties planted in the region, the most notable is Moscato d’Asti, made in a sparkling style in the Asti subregion.
