Viberti Nebbiolo Langhe DOC

Marked by ripe red fruit flavors, particularly cherries, and soft tannins, Viberti Nebbiolo is a fresh expression of Piedmont’s signature varietal.  Vinified in stainless steel, the wine was aged for 9 months before being transferred into neutral oak barrels known as tini where it rested 2-3 months prior to bottling.  An additional 3 months of bottle aging followed.  Best within 3-5 years of the vintage.

Offers expressive fruit, with raspberry, cherry and floral flavors matched to a silky texture and backed by solid tannins that leave a dusty feel. Tea and tobacco notes enliven the finish. Drink now through 2018.

Fresh and savory, this opens with aromas of rose, blue flower, and perfumed berries. The palate serves up juicy dark cherry, crushed raspberry and sweet cake spices along with a hint of alpine herbs. Vibrant and easygoing, this should be enjoyed soon.
