Trediberri Barolo DOCG 2016 (93 WA)
“The Trediberri 2016 Barolo has crossed all its t’s and dotted all its i’s. This is a nicely zipped-up expression of Nebbiolo that follows a classic aromatic playlist with forest berry, pressed violet, crushed stone and tangy licorice. This carefully balanced ensemble enables the wine to spread evenly over the palate, imparting elegance and silkiness as it does. If I were to assign one descriptor to this Barolo, it would be balance. The grapes are fermented in cement, and the wine ages in oak for 23 months. I also like the fact that this wine is not quite immediate, but almost. You could easily pop the cork with just a few more years of aging under its belt.”
Like all wines from Trediberri, the Barolo possesses a thorough line of elegance and purity. Notable for its drinkability and finesse, even at a young age, there is no doubt that this wine will develop gracefully over the years. Trediberri aims for a “weightless” power to the wine, which is meant to typify the best of La Morra.
La Morra, Piedmont
Trediberri prides themselves on their upstart status. No ancestral coat of arms adorn the walls of their winery, no rampant horses or fluttering angels guard the vineyards. They are a young, artisanal family operation — in fact, they view their lack of history as a feature, not a flaw — with a keen focus on the present, using their wines as a medium for the unique terroir of Berri.
