Born only in 2012 the Trediberri cantina of La Morra pulls together three Piedmontesi (Nicola Oberto & his father Federico and their associate Vladimiro Rambaldi) who’ve invested in 5ha of Berri vineyards, a hamlet of La Morra, back in 2008.
Nicola is a recent graduate of Milan’s Bocconi University, former Merrill Lynch staff, a statistician and a passionate advocate and lover of fine wine. Father Federico has spent forty years working for a local, large Barolo producer, while Nebbiolo enthusiast Vladimiro runs a bank. There’s an important fourth person, Anna Rosa Oberto (mother/wife) who tends the vines fastidiously when not working at the local post office.
In addition to the 5ha, the Oberto family have 2ha of one of the Langhe’s top vineyards: Rocche dell’Annunziata; located in the very heart of the vineyard. Indeed their new winery in the Borgata of Torriglione overlooks the vineyard. Guided by Anna Rosa, they follow a low impact, organic approach to viticulture, while the wines are made traditionally with extended macerations & large oak ageing.
Vintage 2015 Barolo was aged in three new 52Hl botti Garbellotto grandi, alongside an older 48HL one; Rocche dell’Annunziata is aged in one 25HL. From vintage 2017, the Langhe Nebbiolo incorporates fruit from Livio’s Alta Langa 3ha Levice vineyard (for freshness). From 2018, the Oberto family will have regained possession of their full 1.4ha Rocche dell’Annunziata vineyard, with vines back to 1951. In 2019 they’re building a new bottle storage area, & in the same year they’ll be producing – harvest allowing – their first Dolcetto d’Alba from the alta Langa comune of Vicoforte!
