Viberti Giovanni Buon Padre Barolo
Leafy underbrush, leather, truffle, grilled herb and tilled soil aromas lead the way. The dense, forward palate doles out juicy black cherry, star anise, tobacco and an earthy hint of game while velvety tannins give it a smooth, polished texture. It has immediate appeal and will offer fine drinking for the next few years. Drink through 2020.

THE VIBERTI WINERY WAS FOUNDED IN THE EARLY 1900S, WHEN ANTONIO VIBERTI PURCHASED AN INN IN THE VERGNE DISTRICT OF BAROLO, KNOWN AS “AL BUON PADRE”, ALONG WITH AN ADJOINING FARM THAT PRODUCED THE WINE SERVED IN THE TRATTORIA. .
At that time, Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo grapes were the three varieties used by Antonio to produce his wines, which he sold exclusively in the restaurant.
In 1967, Antonio’s son Giovanni became owner of the business, supported by his wife Maria. Maria’s personable nature with the restaurant clientele, has been fundamental in the growth of the winery and the restaurant. As head chef of the family and restaurant kitchen, Maria is committed to the preparation of the freshest local and seasonal produce. With her help, the Viberti family and winery has gone from strength to strength.
