Trediberri translates in italiano as the three from Berri (a little hamlet of La Morra, the highest town in Barolo and renowned for wines of elegance and refinement).
Father and son team Frederico & Nicola Oberto and friend Vladimiro Rambaldi (a banker) make up the trio and back in 2008 they purchased 5ha of Berri vineyards in La Morra. Anna Rosa Oberto (wife/mother) is also hands on pruning vines fastidiously when not working at the post office. The Oberto family also have 2ha of one of premium Barolo cru: Rocche dell’Annunziata. Their new winery in the village of Torriglione overlooks the vineyard.
Winemaking is led by Fredercio Oberto following his retirement from Renato Ratti after several decades. Under guidance of Anna Rosa they take a sustainable, organic approach to the vines and since 2012 Trediberri has been certified by CCPB in conversion to organics.
This new kid on the block is making some brilliant wines and I enjoyed them too much over lunch in a recent Barolo trip in January and was again highly impressed in a recent Sydney tasting.
Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, Feb 2018. … “Trediberri is a new entry in the Piedmont landscape. Proprietor Frederico Oberto who previously worked at Renato Ratti, along with his son, Nicola, and friend Vladimiro Rambaldi make elegant, classically inspired Barolos from vineyards in La Morra. Nicola Oberto is young and brimming with both passion and enthusiasm, all qualities that make Trediberri an estate to watch. These wines are just gorgeous.”
Andrew Jefford named Trediberri amongst his “Five Outstanding Barolo & Barbaresco Producers for Value” August ’15
Barbera fruit hails from their own vineyards near the winery within village of Torriglione and a little from a rented old vine parcel in Berri. 2017 was a solar vintage in Barolo and Piemonte and this warmth suited barbera . This 2017 release is delicious, rich, round and juicy balanced by good acidity. Ripe blood plum fruit, hint of spice with juicy acidity and more-ish savoury finish. What more does one need in life? A delicious bargain is what we have here!
