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 Piedmont. 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.
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.
Winemaking: Fermented in concrete with a Pied de Cuve* for 14 days [no malolactic fermentation], aged in concrete for 4 months.
Tasting Notes: Gold in colour, very aromatic, with apple, pear, pineapple, herbs, trace of tomato leaf and hint of anise biscotti. Yellow apple, herbs, lemon and clean minerality are glossed by fresh acidity. Citrus zest and hazelnut linger on the mineral driven finish. Creamy and fresh.

*A small amount of grapes are collected a few days before harvest, these grapes are pressed and fermentation begins. This is then added to the main harvest grapes. This ancient winemaking technique is a sort of control or stabilization for natural yeast fermentation, preventing undesirable strains of yeast ensuring purity of aroma and flavour, without the addition of any chemicals.
