A beautiful Barbera with adequate fruit concentration and density balanced by a bright acidity. Barbera has always been pigeon holed as a peasant wine, but what I'm seeing from this variety (and Dolcetto) is that it's receiving the attention in the vineyard it deserves by a growing number of producers. Andrea Oberto is one such producer. - Chris L

Details

The word Langhe comes from the Latin linguae (tongues), according to the conjecture most credited by historians. And when you look down from the town of LaMorra, one of the finest production areas for Barolo, a few kilometres from Alba (Cuneo), in the heart of Piedmont, the rolling hills do indeed look like neatly interwoven tongues of earth. At an altitude of 513 metres, La Morra retains the charm of its Medieval origins and boasts a winemaking heritage of outstanding importance: the characteristics of the area differ from hillside to hillside, giving rise to exceptional sensory variety between different wines of the same type.

Among the crests of these hills, towards Verduno, lies the Andrea Oberto Winery, which started life as a small family-run concern and now manages an area of 16 hectares of vineyards and a new production facility, which was completed in 2003, producing a range of 10 wines. This substantial production is crowned by the company’s true pride and joy, a tribute to the undisputed king of these vineyards: Barolo BrunateBarolo Rocche and Barolo Albarella, three cru from the finest vineyards in the Barolo production zone, which takes in 11 towns in the Langhe area.

The range also includes varieties of Barbera d’Alba (including Giada and San Giuseppe), Langhe Rosso and Dolcetto d’Alba (including Vigna Vantrino Albarella). The winery’s vineyards, which are Guyot-trained on a prevalently lime/clay soil, lie in the territory of La Morra, Barolo and Cherasco.
