Elegant Barolo with fine tannins, complex aromas and a lot of harmony. A super Barolo from a great vintage.
The grapes for the Fabio Oberto Barolo del Comune di La Morra 2016 DOCG come from old vines in a vineyard located in La Morra. The old vines promise grapes of the highest quality. The manual harvest takes place in mid-October each year and the grapes are immediately processed in Fabio's wine cellar. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and then two years of aging in large Slovenian oak barrels. After six months of bottle storage, the Barolo is finally on the market.
This Barolo has fruity, berry and balsamic notes. On the palate it is juicy and animating, dense with abundant and wonderfully subtle tannins. A fantastic, powerful Barolo with good length, elegance and harmony. It's already a pleasure to drink, but also has good potential for development. Goes well with game, roasts and red meat. Also with aged cheese.
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 group of so-called young winegrowers who will decisively influence the wine scene in Piedmont.
