Trediberri Barbera d’Alba DOC 2018
SPECIAL 6 OR MORE BUY .. Ripe blood plum fruit, spice and juicy acidity. “The wines are just gorgeous” Antonio Galloni.
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.
Nic Oberto oversees the winemaking at Trediberri with his father Federico (following his retirement from Renato Ratti after several decades) and Enologist Livio Taretto, and Nic’s fiancée Stefania Drocco, plays an increasingly important role in the overall Trediberri story. Since 2012 Trediberri winery has been certified by CCPB srl, Bologna as in conversion to organic.
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. 2018 was a warm, dry vintage in Barolo and Piemonte and this warmth suited barbera . This 2018 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! Under screwcap.
92 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review “Deep, bright, bold purple/red colour. The aromas are chockablock with ripe cherry and plum aromas, the palate bright with elevated acidity and medium to full-body, abundant supple tannins and richness. Fruit flavour is to the fore and it’s bright and intense. A big grip to close, but the tannins are good, ripe tannins. A high-quality wine.”
