Vigneto Bricco delle Viole
It is one of the main crus by extension of the municipality of Barolo and is also one of the highest, since the altitude of its vineyards varies between 400 and 500 m s.l.m. The Viberti Giovanni winery has 4 vineyards inside the cru. The exposures are mainly south and south east and the soil has an argil-calcareous composition. The resulting wines are decidedly elegant, with fine and feminine primary aromas. The height of the vineyard is found in the great freshness and minerality of its wines, well supported by an important acid framework. The particle used for the Barolo Riserva Bricco Delle Viole extends for 0.5 hectares, while the other vineyards are mainly cultivated with Nebbiolo for the exclusive production of Barolo Buon Padre. Historically, in the heart of the south side of the cru, the Viberti family owns a Barbera vineyard of over 80 years of age: a pride and joy that is kept and cultivated with passion that gives rise to the Barbera label called Bricco Airoli. Recently a new vineyard was built in the highest part of the cru, with a wide exposure that from the south east rotates to the west: one hectare characterized by a mainly calcareous soil. Part of this important vineyard will also be used for the Langhe Nebbiolo.
