Estate: The Trediberri [three of Berri] estate is located in the small village of Berri, in the westernmost part of La Morra, close to the Tanaro River in the Langhe region of Piedmonte. Nicola Oberto along with his friend Vladimiro Rambaldi founded Trediberri in 2007, when they purchased 5 hectares in Barolo. Today their vineyard holdings have increased to include 2 hectares in the Rocche Annunziata and Torriglione, where they produce Barolo, Barbera and Sauvignon Blanc, along with renting an additional hectare in La Morra.
The family winery is aware that they are young, but they are passionate about crafting “the most drinkable and balanced wines possible”. Using organic, traditional and biodynamic methods, they strive for equilibrium in their wines. In 2012 they began the organic certification process, in order to be transparent in their practice and guarantee the precise methods used in organic winemaking. They tend to age in cement, however depending on the individual grape or vineyard, they may choose to use wood instead. Progressive, honest and fantastically witty, check out their original, clever bio page here.
Winemaking: Fermented and aged in cement and stainless steel.
Tasting Notes: Brilliant ruby red in colour, very aromatic with strawberry, raspberry, white pepper, earth and wildflowers. Silky layers of wild berries, fennel, earth and peppery spice are framed by fresh acidity and woolly tannins. A drizzle of caramel along with a pinch of smoky sea salt accents red berries and spice on the plush finish. Fresh, bright and fun!
