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. Mesdi Rosso is 100% Nebbiolo and is aged in oak vats for 6 months before resting in cement tanks for a further 8 months.
A light ruby in the glass with orange tints. Aromas of rose petals and sweet spices with notes of dark chocolate. On the palate, fresh and fruity with moderate tannins and a balanced acidity. Excellent with roasted butternut squash, wild mushroom risotto or Gorgonzola cheese.
