2014 Vigneto Albarella Andrea Oberto
Leaps from the glass with amazing aromatics, red fruit, cherry, raspberry, earth, tar and beautiful florality. The palate is succulent with layered richness, fine tannins, tight but concentrated fruit and then aromatic herbs and a dark fleshiness on the long finish. Drinking range: 2020 - 2028 L&S (Oct 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The 2014 Barolo Albarella is fabulous. Succulent black cherry, lavender, graphite, spice, new leather and menthol all flesh out in the glass. Ample, creamy and voluptuous, with plenty of supporting tannin, the dark, brooding 2014 shows off the more potent side of the year while somehow managing to be both deep and wonderfully translucent. This is a tremendous Barolo from Andrea Oberto that needs time to fully come together and assimilate its oak. Drinking range: 2022 - 2034 Rating: 93+ Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com(Feb 2018)
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.
