High-quality Barbera with complex aromas, elegance and great balance
The Barbera grape variety has always been of great importance to the Oberto winery. It was therefore important for Fabio to take over a small vineyard from his father, which has been planted with Barbera vines for decades. Fabio presses a high-quality Barbera wine from the grapes from these vines. The grapes are hand-picked in September and then immediately transported to the nearby cantina for processing. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by a two-year aging both in stainless steel tanks and in used barriques. After a short period of bottle storage, the Barbera is finally sold.
On the nose, the Barbera has elegant, fruity aromas of black cherries, blackberries, violets and a slightly spicy note. The taste is round, well structured and balanced. Full-bodied, balanced and elegant on the palate with a long-lasting finish. This Barbera goes well with red meat dishes, game and mature cheeses. The wine is ready to drink immediately and for the next 8-10 years.
The producer: Fabio Oberto
Fabio Oberto worked in his father Andrea's winery from an early age and learned from him along the way that in addition to the technical skills to practice the profession of winemaker, the love and passion for nature and to live in harmony with it and working is essential to produce sustainable and quality wine.
A few years ago, Fabio got on his own two feet and founded the La Collina di Dioniso winery. The winery is also like that of his father in the Barolo municipality of La Morra and Fabio has taken over the family's vineyards there, which are mainly planted with middle-aged Nebbiolo vines.
Although Fabio has only been an independent winemaker for a few years, he has already attracted attention with his authentic wines. He is guided by his passion for local wine culture and tradition to produce wines that are sustainable but will also represent the future of Piedmont's wine landscape. Fabio is one of the guard of the so-called young winegrowers who will decisively influence the wine scene in Piedmont.
