Very rich, almost 'burnt-edged'. Very very tannic on finish - but this is fabulously rich and intense and there is so much to come in the future which looks long and assured.L&S(Jun 2013)
Much more fruit and juice than on the Vigneto Rocche 2009. Dusty but correct and fine. Really quite heady. Drinking range: 2018 - 2034 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Sep 2016)
Aromas of ripe strawberries and hints of hazelnuts and chocolate. Full body, with silky tannins and a long finish. Firm and straightforward. Try in 2015. Rating: 92 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(Apr 2014)
A small family run winery and vineyard based in La Morra, The Obertos have sixteen hectares of vineyards and produce a brilliant 'village' Barolo as well as 2 from the different 'crus' of Rocche dell'Annunziata and Albarella. The wines are beautifully focused and age well, although immensely approachable in their youth as there is a deliciously juicy and generous feel that runs through all the wines.
The Andrea Oberto winery’s origins are humble in fact everything began in 1959 when Andrea's father bought a farmhouse in La Morra. At that time the farmers could not survive with just one crop, therefore, he earned a living growing peaches, grapes and raising cows. However, in the family business there was enough work for everyone and so Andrea, when he became adult, decided to leave the farm and started working for a big company as truck driver. Andrea came back (Thankfully!) to La Morra in 1978 when his father died. He inherited the family’s land and he began managing the farm. He soon began to focus solely on vine growing. At the beginning the grapes were sold to cooperatives with some sold locally to friends and family. Devoting all of his time and energies to the family farm Andrea's talents soon became clear, and the small farm quickly morphed into a wine company with sixteen hectares of their own wines and brilliant cellar.
