Andrea Oberto
Langhe, from the Latin of the tongue (language), according to the most credible hypothesis of historians. And as strips of land neatly intertwined appear the rolling hills above the village of La Morra, one of the most suited to the production of Barolo, a few kilometers from Alba (Cuneo), in the heart of Piedmont. With its 513 meters above sea level, La Morra has the charm medieval origin and a wine heritage of enormous, it diversified from side to side and resulting in a great variety of sensory wines of the same type. Among the ripples of these hills, in the direction of Verduno, it founded the Azienda Agricola Andrea Oberto, who from a small family-run today came to manage an extension to 16 hectares of land planted with vines and a new winery, completed in 2003, with a range of 10 wines. Production nourished in which stand the true flagships of the company, which make about the undisputed king of these vineyards: we speak of Brunate Barolo, Barolo Rocche and Barolo Albarella three cru fruit of the best vineyards of the production of Barolo, which includes 11 municipalities of the Langhe.
Tasting notes full garnet in colour with delicate orange highlights.
Wide, clean but complex aroma with scents of dried flowers and red berries.
Well-integrated oak with toasty notes of coffee and leather linger in a perfect balance between elegant body and concentration.

Andrea Oberto

From this winery:
The story of Andrea Oberto might seem banal or sound like the classic yarn, told yet again, but I can assure you that every time I find myself telling people how my father came to be a winemaker, the expression on their faces is one of pure amazement...
