Fabio Oberto Barolo 'Albeisa' 2015

13 units available online.
Product description

Andrea Oberto grew up working on his family’s farm in the small town of La Morra just South of Verduno but spent the early part of his adulthood as a truck driver outside of the family business. When his father passed unexpectedly, he returned home to manage the farm and devoted his life to tending to the 3 ha of vineyards he inherited from his father. In 1978, Andrea shifted the estate’s focus from supplying fruit to the local co-operatives to making its own wines. After 22 years working with his father at the family winery, Fabio Oberto, Andrea's son, has started a business of his own:  Fabio Oberto 'La Collina di Dioniso' gives continuity to the family's vision of making wine true to the great terroir of the area, shared by farmers with same ideals, ambitions and values.

The Fabio Oberto Barolo sits somewhere between a classic and modern style. Notes of tar, leather, stone graphite and earthy aromas add layers of complexity and depth over the classic primary red fruit flavours. On the palate, this is a complex wine, with fine tannins, a medium to full body, deliciously juicy fruits and a lingering finish. This 100% Nebbiolo is delicious. Silky, supple, and succulent. Barolo can be expensive and to find one at this price that is this good is rare. Don't pass this one up! 

Suggested pairings of white truffle, blue cheeses, venison, and other game, as well as red meat, grilled.
