Since the late 1980s, La Morra has been the Barolo commune most strongly associated with the Langhe’s Modernist movement. Even today, Accomasso and Marcarini are among the few famous traditionalists you will spot while scouring the La Morra landscape. Though many of La Morra’s modern-leaning producers have since drifted back towards classicism, there are still few hard-core traditionalists to be found. But in the past decade a new estate, Trediberri, has created considerable excitement as the next great old school azienda.

Trediberri was founded in 2007 as a partnership of three men: Nicola Oberto; Nicola’s father Federico; and the Torinese banker, Vladimiro Rambaldi. Federico contributed prime family holdings in Torriglione and the renowned Rocche dell’Annunziata, and the three jointly purchased 5ha in La Morra’s historic Berri MGA. Nicola runs the estate today, and the project is named after the three partners and their common purchase: Tre-di-Berri, or Three of Berri.

A Focus on Site Federico worked at the Ratti winery for decades, and is descended from several generations of farmers with great holdings. His experience, combined with the ancestral knowledge, made him a very shrewd judge of terroir. The Oberto family holdings in Rocche dell’Annunziata and Torriglione need no introduction, but the Berri purchase illustrates how—from the beginning—the partners focused their energy on extracting unique wines from distinctive vineyards.

Berri is the westernmost MGA in the entire Barolo appellation, and the soils are younger than those in La Morra’s better-known eastern crus. Here, the limestone bedrock is punctuated by outcroppings of sandstone, and the resulting soils have lots of pebbles mixed into the heavy clay. The trio replanted their 5ha parcel in 2007 and began vinifying its grapes with the 2010 vintage. Berri’s south-to-southwest exposure, elevation, and river-cooled climate distinguished it for centuries, as evidenced by the remnants of ancient vineyards found there today. But these slopes were largely abandoned in the years following World War II, as Berri’s growers took more lucrative jobs elsewhere. Today, Federico’s insight has proven prescient, especially with a series of warmer, drier growing seasons.

The Berri vines yield the majority of Trediberri’s Barolo, complemented by the perfume and elegance of Torriglione. Of course, Nicola crafts a monumental single-vineyard Barolo from his crown jewel, Rocche dell’Annunziata, and the winemaking for both wines is classically old school. Three or more weeks fermentation and maceration in concrete tanks are followed by ~2 years aging in Slavonian oak botti by Garbellotto.

Quality at Every Level But Barolo is only the beginning of the Trediberri story, as Nicola puts the same effort and skill into making his Dolcetto, Barbera, and Langhe Nebbiolo. The Dolcetto, which is labeled Dogliani DOCG, comes from a high-altitude site named Bricco Mollea in Alta Langa’s remote southwestern corner. Made from ancient Dolcetto vines at over 600 meters in elevation, its structure and perfume make it a singular example of this variety. The Barbera d’Alba is sourced from estate vines in Torriglione, along with grapes from a close friend who farms organically in Monticello d’Alba (Roero). And the Langhe Nebbiolo is assembled from an ingenious combination of high-altitude vines in Levice and Vicoforte (Alta Langa), plus younger vines in the estate’s La Morra holdings. All of three of these wines are fermented and aged in concrete and stainless steel, and each offers a personality that is totally unique within its category.

Vinous 2020
"Nicola Oberto is one of the most dynamic, emerging producers in Piedmont today. His 2016s are both worthy follow ups to the 2015s, but my impression is that the best is yet to come for this small estate in La Morra."

Vinous 2/2019
"Nicola Oberto is young, passionate, and full of ambition. His family also owns top-notch vineyards, including the crown jewel holdings in La Morra's Rocche dell'Annunziata that previously went to Ratti. Production is set to grow as parcels that were once leased come back to the estate. I find these wines show tremendous purity and sophistication."

Vinous 2/2018
"Trediberri is a new entry in the Piedmont landscape. Proprietor Federico Oberto, who previously worked at Renato Ratti, along with his son, Nicola, and friend Vladimiro Rambaldi make elegant, classically inspired Barolos from vineyards in La Morra. Nicola Oberto is young and brimming with both passion and enthusiasm, all qualities that make Trediberri an estate to watch. These wines are just gorgeous."

    The 2019 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata is the best wine I have tasted yet from Nicola and Stefania Oberto. The biggest change here in recent years is the elimination of small oak in favor of casks, a move that really allows the full character of Rocche dell'Annunziata to come through. Dark cherry, kirsch, hard candy, rose petal and mint are all amplified in this gorgeous, translucent Barolo. A range of perfumed, floral accents lifts the intensely aromatic finish.

    The 2019 Barolo Berri is tightly wound and austere in the early going. Crushed red berry fruit, iron, dried herbs and white pepper give the Berri a striking aromatic top register. The tannins are a bit nervy, though, so a few years in bottle are warranted.

    The 2018 Barolo del Comune di La Morra is absolutely gorgeous. Bright and translucent yet with remarkable depth for the year, the 2018 is terrific. Proprietor Nicola Oberto decided not to bottle his flagship Barolo from Rocche dell'Annunziata and used the fruit to bolster his straight Barolo bottling, a decision that was spot on. Sweet red cherry, orange peel, cinnamon, tobacco and dried leaves are all very nicely lifted in this ethereal, nuanced Barolo. The 2018 is simply exquisite. Readers will have a hard time finding a better example of the year at this level.

    A lithe red, exuding fresh cherry and strawberry fruit, rose petal and mineral flavors. Airy texture and lightness add to its finesse, while a fine line of tannins underneath provide structure without any edges. Shows beautiful harmony and length. Best from 2024 through 2042.

    The 2022 Langhe Nebbiolo is fresh and inviting, with mouthwatering red berries, fine tannins, and wonderful purity throughout. Approachable, floral, and fully dry, with a clean and polished feel, this is an outstanding wine for youthful drinking over the next 5-6 years.

    The 2022 Barbera D'Alba was raised without the use of oak and is packed with mixed berries, spice, and pressed flowers. Fresh and medium-bodied, it is well-structured, with notes of crushed stones, fresh plum, and a clean lift on the finish. A versatile wine, it would be well-suited to stand up to spicier cuisine. Drink 2023-2028.

    The 2019 Barolo Berri was tasted from two barrels, one of which utilized whole bunches in the fermentation. While both offered freshness and purity, the second barrel offered more significant spice in its profile, with more depth of fruit, and is firmly structured at this stage. The components are compelling and should make for a wonderful finished blend in a few years’ time.

    Spicy and elegant, the 2019 Barolo Rocche Dell'Annunziata is laced with notes of incense, fresh earth, and ripe cherry. Linear and driving, it has a gripping structure, with lasting Asian spices, wild berries, and tea leaf. It is an outstanding wine to hold another couple of years and drink 2025-2045.
