A top Barolo single-site wine with diverse aromas, great harmony, complexity and fine tannins. This 2016 vintage particularly accentuates the harmony and complexity of the Albarella.

The Albarella Cru is located in the municipality of Barolo and runs northwest of the Cannubi vineyard. A smaller location, but one that has become more important in recent years. Andrea Oberto owns one hectare of vineyards on this cru and produces around 4000 bottles of Barolo annually. The baroli of this location are characterized by their good structure and great harmony. This harmony is particularly pronounced in the 2016 vintage.

The hand-picking usually takes place in October, and the grapes are destemmed, pressed and then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks immediately after the harvest. The maturation then takes place in French barriques and takes place over a period of 2 years . Then the wine is placed in a stainless steel tank for 2 months and after six months of bottle storage, the Albarella is then sold. < / p>

This Albarella has predominantly balsamic and vegetal notes and impresses on the palate with its full-bodiedness, structure and great harmony. The tannin is pleasantly full-bodied and easily accessible. The wine is ready to drink straight away, but it also has a very high aging potential. Goes well with roasts, game, red meat and mature cheeses. The winery operates integrated viticulture.

THE PRODUCER: ANDREA OBERTO

The history of the Andrea Oberto estate began when the grandfather of the current owner, Fabio, bought a farmhouse in the municipality of La Morra. Today La Morra is the largest and also one of the most important growing areas in the entire Barolo region. But in the early 1950s none of the winemakers could make a living from growing grapes alone. That is why the Oberto family earned their living with agriculture and cattle breeding, and viticulture was more of a minor matter.

It was only when the demand for Barolo increased that Andrea decided to give up his secure job as a bus driver in order to concentrate entirely on viticulture. His son Fabio was able to build on that when he ran the winery took over. Today the winery is one of the established Barolo producers in La Morra. The annual production is around 125,000 bottles of wine and Fabio produces three different Barolo single-site wines. They come from the most renowned crus in La Morra: Albarella, Brunate and Rocche dell 'Annunziata.
