Trediberri Langhe Nebbiolo DOC 2019 (90 WA)
“The Trediberri 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo is a pleasurable and approachable wine that offers plenty of varietal purity. You absolutely taste the Nebbiolo grape with its classic aromas of forest berry, white licorice and dusty earth. The wine offers everything you look for in an entry-level red: informality, elegance and personality. The wine shows some structure, so I suggest a pairing with foods heavy in melted mozzarella or other creamy cheese.”
Langhe Nebbiolo is not only one of the greatest values in Piedmont, but often serves as a barometer for the seriousness and talents of a producer. Trediberri’s is unquestionably one of the best available. Primarily from their vineyards in La Morra and Roero, this Nebbiolo is also sourced from alongside their Dolcetto vines in Vicoforte. As winemaker Nicola Oberto exclaims, this is “a wine that’s meant to be easy, but certainly not trivial.” It’s delightfully food friendly, playing just as nicely with charcuterie as it does with a rich ragu.

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.
