A small family run business based in La Morra, over sixteen hectares of vineyards and producing ten wines.The Barolos come from a production area encompassing eleven towns, including the famous 'crus' of Brunate, Rocche, and Albarella. The wines are beautifully focussed and age well, although immensely approachable in their youth.
Other reviews and comments
This is a strong set of 2006 Barolos from father and son team Andrea and Fabio Oberto. I had a chance to taste the 2006s next to the estate’s 2005s, and it is pretty clear the 2006s possess an extra dimension of generosity over their older brethren that, among other things, results in better integration of the oak. The 2006 Barolos were vinified in steel for roughly 10-12 days, with the exception of the Brunate, which was vinified in oak. The malos took place in a heated cellar. The single-vineyard Barolos were subsequently aged in a combination of barrel and cask (30% cask, 35% new barrique, 35% once-used barrique). The estate’s 2007s, which I tasted from barrel are highly promising as well.
