The Viberti family having been making wine in the village of Vergne just outside Barolo for nearly one hundred years, and today that tradition is continued by Gianluca Viberti who has been running his 10 hectare estate since 2010. 'Casina Bric' translates into 'Hilltop Winery' and '460' refers to the altitude in metres above sea level of the vines, leading Gianluca to claim that his property is the most elevated in Barolo. A strictly organic approach to tending the vines is employed here and all the grapes are hand-harvested. This elegant red comes from Nebbiolo vines grown at the highest point of Barolo and spends up to two years in oak and 12 months in bottle before release.
A light ruby in colour. Scents of cranberries, pomegranate with a touch of anise. On the palate, medium-bodied and floral with a brisk acidity and powerful tannins. Great food wine with wild boar agnolotti, roast duck or chestnut gnocchi with Gorgonzola.
