2018 TREDIBERRI LANGHE ROSATOTrediberri
Producer: Nicola & Federico Oberto & Vladimiro Rambaldi
Grape: 80 % Nebbiolo 20% Barbera
Zone: La Morra & Roero, Langhe Rosato DOC
Born only in 2012 the Trediberri cantina of La Morra pulls together three Piedmontesi (Nicola Oberto & his father Federico and their associate Vladimiro Rambaldi) who’ve invested in 5ha of Berri vineyards, a hamlet of La Morra, back in 2008.
Nicola is a recent graduate of Milan’s fine Bocconi University, former Merrill Lynch staff, a statistician and a passionate advocate and lover of fine wine. Father Federico has spent forty years working for a local, large Barolo producer, while Nebbiolo enthusiast Vladimiro runs a bank. There’s an important fourth person, Anna Rosa Oberto (mother/wife) who tends the vines fastidiously when not working at the local post office.
In addition to the 5ha, the Oberto family have 2ha of one of the Langhe’s top vineyards: Rocche dell’Annunziata; located in the very heart of the vineyard. Indeed their new winery in the Borgata of Torriglione overlooks the vineyard. Guided by Anna Rosa, they follow a low impact, organic approach to viticulture, while the wines are made traditionally with extended macerations & large oak ageing. Trediberri also rent c. 2ha of nearby Cappalotti vineyard.
The Langhe Rosato 2015 Trediberri is the result of a blend of Nebbiolo from our younger vines with a piece of fruit (Nebbiolo and Barbera) from the Roero.
Tasting note: Juicy and fruit driven. Displaying aromas of currants, cherries and raspberries.
Growing System: Guyot
