Oberto's 2011 Barolo is a pretty entry-level offering to drink over the next few years, while the contours remain soft and inviting. Crushed flowers, cinnamon, sweet red berries and a dash of French oak flesh out on the mid-palate. This pretty, beautifully balanced Barolo from Oberto makes a good introduction to both the year and vintage.

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 focused and age well, although immensely approachable in their youth.

In the words's of Fabio Oberto:

"The Andrea Oberto winery’s origins are humble in fact everything began in 1959 when my grandfather bought a farmhouse in La Morra. At that time the farmers could not survive with just one crop, therefore, my grandfather earned a living growing peaches, grapes and raising cows. However in the family business there was enough work for everyone and this is the reason why my father, Andrea, when he became adult, decided to leave his family in order to start working for a big company as truck driver. Andrea came back to La Morra just in 1978 when his father died. He inherited the family’s land and he began managing the farm. Over the years wine has become a popular product and this encouraged many farmers, like Andrea to focus solely on vine growing. At the beginning part of the grapes was sold to cooperatives and another part was transformed into wine which was sold bulk to private customers. Devoting all of his time and energies in order to realize his dream, Andrea transformed a small farm into a wine company with sixteen hectares as well as a wine production of 100.000 bottles of prestigious wine which today is sold worldwide."
