A very good Nebbiolo with lots of fruit, good balance, elegance and structure.
The berries for this Barolo come from three different vineyards in La Morra that have been in the family for generations. Only the best grapes are used for this high-quality Nebbiolo. The hand-picking takes place at the end of September each year and the grapes are immediately processed in Fabio's wine cellar. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank and then it is aged for 18 months in large Slovenian oak barrels. After six months of bottle storage, the Barolo finally goes on sale.
This fruity Nebbiolo is multi-layered, tightly woven with fine-grained tannins, very elegant and with a full mouthfeel . A really great and high quality Nebbiolo with good potential for expansion. This Nebbiolo is a great pleasure to drink straight away, but it can also be left to store for a few years. A good accompaniment to risotto, lamb, poultry and grilled cheese.
The producer Fabio Oberto
Fabio Oberto worked from an early age in his father Andrea's winery and learned from him on the way that, in addition to the manual skills, he should practice the profession of winemaker, love and passion for nature and live in harmony with it and working is essential to produce sustainable and high quality wine.
A few years ago, Fabio stood on his own two feet and founded the La Collina di Dioniso winery. Like his father's, the winery is located 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, his authentic wines have already attracted my attention. He lets himself be guided by his passion for the local wine culture and tradition in order to produce wines that are sustainable but will also represent the future of the Piedmontese wine landscape. Fabio is one of the so-called young winemakers who will have a decisive influence on the wine scene in Piedmont.
