Trediberri Barbera dAlba 2018 - Wine

Tasting Notes

Barbera d’Alba 2017 Trediberri comes from one of the driest and hottest years in our history. The above-average heat from May to August and the lack of water limited the yield and raised the skin-juice ratio, thus providing a full, structured and juicy barbera. Pure expression of fruit. Perhaps not as balanced as 2016, but much more voluptuous. Drink today with medium-aged cheeses, boiled meat or tajarin al ragù, or it can be stored without problems at least for the next decade. 2018-2028

Production Notes

First fermentation: pied de cuve, about 7 days of fermentation and maceration in concrete. Malolactic fermentation: spontaneous in concrete and steel. Aging: about 6 months in concrete and stainless steel.

Producer Profile

A relatively new winery, the Trediberri cantina of La Morra was established in 2012. It all began when three Piedmontese - Nicola Oberto, his father Federico and their associate Vladimiro Rambaldi - bought five hectares of vineyards in Berri, a hamlet of La Morra. Nicola's father, Federico, had spent forty years working for a local, large Barolo producer. He now helps Nicola in the winery alongside his wife, Anna Rosa Oberto, who tends to the vines fastidiously. In addition to the five hectares, the Oberto family have two hectares in one of the Langhe’s top vineyards - Rocche dell’Annunziata - located in the very heart of the region. Guided by Anna Rosa, they follow a low impact, organic approach to viticulture, while the wines are made traditionally with extended macerations and aged in large oak botti. Trediberri also farm grapes from two hectares of rented vines nearby Cappalotti vineyard. They have been certified organic since 2015.
