2019 TREDIBERRI LANGHE NEBBIOLOTrediberri
Producer: Nicola & Federico Oberto & Vladimiro Rambaldi
Grape: 100 % Nebbiolo
Zone: Langhe 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.
Tasting note: Classic aromas of forest berry, white licorice and dusty earth. The wine offers everything you look for in an entry-level Piedmonte red: informality, elegance and personality.
Growing System: Guyot
Soil Composition: Grey Clay
Production: Fermentation lasts about two weeks and takes place in concrete. The wine is further aged in a mix of steel and concrete.
Alcohol (%) 14%
