Erbaluna Di Obertro Andrea - Barolo 2016 (750ml)


| /

The brothers of Erbaluna, Severino and Andrea Oberto, quietly make terroir-expressive wines in their historic home of La Morra, descendants of a long line of winemakers. In 1985, taking over from their father, they decided to retrieve the contact with the earth that seemed lost in the prior decades. Through them, the modern world has entered the winery, with stainless steel and the latest machinery as well as the sensitivity to nature, converting the vineyards to organically farmed plots. The wine is still made in the large foudre barrels (still etched with the date of 1915!) and the cellar lined with bottles from the Roaring 1920’s. The classic (elegant and terroir-driven) meets the modern (youthful, exuberant, fresh fruits) to make drinkable, pleasure-filled Barbera, Nebbiolo and Dolcetto. The vineyards face south, growing down the steep hills of clay and limestone with layers of ancient sandstone beneath. Why would the brothers change a thing? They admire the land that provides for them and understand the sacrifices made in the past from which they now benefit. They are a family winery, naturally and organically.
