Trediberri Barolo DOCG 2016 (94 VM)
“The 2016 Barolo is a powerful, deep wine that is going to need time to soften and further open up. Black cherry, plum, spice, leather, dried herbs and menthol infuse the 2016 with notable aromatic depth as well as a palpable sense of brooding, virile intensity to match its classically built, mid-weight structure. This is an especially potent vintage for the straight Barolo, and there is clearly so much going on in the glass; it is a superb wine in the making. The Barolo is a blend of 80% Berri and 20% Rocche dell’Annunziata.”
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.
