From the exceptional 2016 vintage, this Barolo is made exclusively with fruit from vineyards in the famed village of La Morra. The grapes are destemmed and soft pressed before fermentation and maceration takes place using the traditional submerged cap method where skins and pips are left in contact with the juice for about 6 weeks. The wine is then matured in Slavonian oak barrels for 24 months before undergoing further maturation in bottle.
The Fabio Oberto Barolo Del Comune Di La Morra is garnet red in colour, with brick hues that will intensify over time. The perfume is intense and complex, but delicate and ethereal at the same time. On the palate, it is true to the La Morra style, slightly more elegant and less tannic than the rest of the region. Flavours of cassis, blackberry, cherry and raspberry and balanced with a savoury earthiness. Best enjoyed after decanting to experience the many layers to this superb Barolo.
