The weight and the silk of the straight Barolo. Wonderful precision of aromatic purity. Very dense and very tannic too, but with such volume that the tannins are hidden, smoothed. Huge power of plum and black cherry. Finest tannins and good acidity give great elegance. Superb. Finish shows great depth and length. Already expressive and in some ways silky, but this needs a little time - say three years, and then drink over the following ten. L&S (Jun 2014)

Aged in barrique, 20% new. Intense aroma of lightly spicy red fruit with a hint of orange, dried-cherry richness but not overly sweet. Hints of tea and a gentle floral quality. Everything you want in Nebbiolo scent plus just a touch of oak sweetness. Lovely texture, dry, mouth-coating tannins but so gentle and spreading softly to wash the palate. Already giving pleasure but much more to come. Drinking range: 2018 - 2035 Rating: 18 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com (Nov 2015)
Hints of game, lead pencil, coffee and black pepper complement dark cherry aromas and flavours. Ripe and intense with full juicy fruit flavours. Excellent structure and length that will develop well. Drinking range: 2015 - 2035 Rating: 90+ Decanter Magazine (Feb 2015)
Deep garnet, flecked with subtle pale orange. Generous, complex, clean-edged nose, with dried flowers and wild red berry fruit. The palate displays fine integration between oak and notes of tanned leather and roast espresso bean, with a remarkable development balancing power, extraction, and elegance. Perfect with red meat and full-flavoured, aged cheeses. Winemaker's notes (Oct 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.
