2018 Osvaldo Viberti Langhe Nebbiolo
100% organic Nebbiolo from the single, 1 hecare (2.4 acre) Borgata Serra dei Turchi vineyard in La Morra, so this is basically a baby Barolo. The wine undergoes natural fermentation before spending six to eight months in older oak casks. It's got a beautiful bright ruby red color with a classic Nebbiolo nose of roses, violets, raspberries and potpourri and flavors of tart red cherry, raspberry and a hint of oak. Nebbiolo's characteristic tannins are present, but they're fairly round. Dry and high acid, with a clean, tart finish.
The Viberti estate in La Morra was founded by Osvaldo's grandparents, and he now farms the 25 acre estate along with his wife Carla and his children Anna and Paolo. Although uncertified, the vines are farmed organically and without the use of pesticides.
