Tasting Note

A fine expression of the Barbera grape variety by the youthful and energetic Claudio Viberti, Alba’s brightest wine making star. Ripe cherry and plum fruit is accompanied by spice and fine tannin. (Will)

Awards & Accolades

"This is such a food-friendly red it ought to be on as many restaurant lists as the (admittedly limited) production allows, but I've yet to find it anywhere in the UK other than The Vintner wine merchant - bravo to them! Barbera, named after its grape variety, is very much the understudy in Piedmont to the more regal Barolo (made from the Nebbiolo grape) but, in the hands of a good producer like Viberti, Barbera's lower tannin levels, higher acidity and generous cherry flavours make it all the more approachable. More approachable in price, too." Joanna Simon, House & Garden

The Producer

Viberti Giovanni

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. Today at Viberti Giovanni, Claudio, the youngest son, represents the third generation to run the family business and now exports wine to Europe and the USA. Claudio is directly committed to the wine making process using his know-how, which has been passed down through the generations.
