Viberti Giovanni Barolo Dinner

Enrico and Elisa Scavino  

Trattoria at Buon Padre

 

We are happy to welcome Claudio Viberti to share a fine dinner with us featuring the wines of Viberti Giovanni Barolo. Claudio is the third generation to run this classic winery which began about 120 years ago.

In the beginning the Vibertis opened Buon Padre, a restaurant in Barolo which came with some vineyards. These were used to make the wine for patrons of the restaurant. In the sixties, Claudio’s father Giovanni began to market the wines commercially. His mother Maria still runs the restaurant.

Stylistically these wines are traditional and all aged in large wood barrels. They also age extremely well and are particularly known for their complex and identifiable aromatics. These wines are relatively new to the American market but I have known about them for many years and they are truly special.
