Vintage Notes: 2018 was a challenging vintage for Trediberri. The wines resulting from their various vineyards couldn’t be more different. The best parcels were particularly serious and profound (as such important vineyards should be almost every year), whereas Berri Vineyard provided a pretty wine missing depth. Blending all the wines was a ray of light, and the result is a Barolo del Comune di La Morra.

Tasting Notes: Barolo del Commune di La Morra has a pure nose of fruit, soft and light midpalate, lingering deep finish. It's an iron fist in a velvet glove. Due to its inner freshness, it will surely last for decades, but also is excellent now.

Winemaking Notes: The grapes are sourced from Trediberri's La Morra vineyards. Alcoholic fermentation happens in concrete and lasts around 12-14 days, followed by a 4-5 day post-fermentation maceration. Total skin maceration is around 3 weeks. Then malolactic takes place in concrete and steel. The wine ages for around 20 months in 52-hl and 25-hl oak barrels crafted by Garbellotto. After aging, the wine rests for some months in concrete, steel, and plastic tanks before being bottled, usually in July-August of the year before the release.

    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.
