A harmonious Barolo with fine tannins, good structure and diverse aromas.
The Nebbiolo grapes for the Fabio Oberto Barolo 2016 La Collina di Dioniso DOCG come from a south-east facing vineyard in the municipality of La Morra. The great age of the vines of almost sixty years promises high-quality grapes. In late autumn, the grapes are harvested by hand and after being transported to the nearby wine cellar, they are de-stemmed and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The expansion then takes place in large oak barrels over a period of twenty-four months. The Barolo only goes on sale after it has been bottled for a long time.
This Fabio Oberto Barolo 2016 is a full-bodied wine with fine-grained tannins, good structure, tension and length. Fine fragrance with earthy spice, plus balsamic and fruity notes. The wine is already well developed and ready to drink immediately with good aging potential. A good accompaniment to game, red meat, risotto and mature 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 guard of the so-called young winegrowers who will decisively influence the wine scene in Piedmont.
