The grapes of different origins are harvested and vinified separately. The wines produced are aged in French and Slavonian oak vats and barrels, exclusively not toasted; 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 imposing structure, but with soft and elegant tannins. The company's will is to avoid the perception of astringent tannins, thanks to the use of controlled fermentations and not too prolonged macerations.

Ageing potential 15+ years

Ageing For 36-40 months in conical oak vats with an average capacity of 50 hl. The Buon Padre cuvée is the result of a careful blending of wines obtained from different crus / vineyards. Each single cru is harvested, vinified and aged individually. At the end of the same aging, the final blend is created. A few weeks later, the bottling takes place, which does not require any type of filtration. A possible refinement of 3/6 months in the bottle before being released on the market.

Vinification Thinning in the vineyard and selection during the grape harvest. Collection in boxes of 20Kg. After destemming-crushing, maceration and alcoholic fermentation takes place on the skins for 18-20 days, partly in submerged cap roto-vinifiers and partly in emerged cap vinifiers.

Today the Viberti Giovanni winery continues its history with the third generation, which sees Claudio, the youngest son, directly involved in winemaking and management operations.

Thanks to its past, today it can count on a production of 120,000 bottles a year, on a young and motivated staff and on the ambition to reach ever new goals. Recently, a substantial investment concerned the Barbera vine, in particular for the production of the last born "La Gemella". From a friendship born between the school desks, in recent years it has been reached an important agreement for the acquisition of Nebbiolo grapes from a historic particle in the heart of the Monvigliero di Verduno cru.
The Barolo Buon Padre remains at the center of family attention: since 2012, in its assembly, the Nebbiolo have been added from a Perno di Serralunga d'Alba vineyard and from the Albarella cru, in the heart of the municipality of Barolo. Barolo Buon Padre continues to grow in its most classic style, thanks to the contribution, today, of eight different Barolo crus, expertly cultivated in respect of their biodiversity.
