Product description

Fabulous Fabio! Invite a few friends over, compare the 2015 and 2016 vintages and enjoy these 2 exquisite wines from Italy.

Fabio Oberto Barolo 'Albeisa' 2015 (1 bottle) 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.

Fabio Oberto Barolo 'F' 2016 (1 bottle) 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 2016 Barolo is fleshy, succulent and super-expressive, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next decade or so. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, cinnamon, mint and rose petals all flesh out in the glass, while soft, silky tannins give this forward Barolo plenty of near and medium-term appeal. This is such a delicious wine.
