Trediberri, was founded only in 2007, which makes it surely one of the newest producers in the entire Barolo DOC. Yet the wines taste so utterly classical and traditional that you would never guess. The wines feel like they've been around for generations.

The explanation is Nicolas Oberto's father, Federico, who worked for Renato Ratti from 1970 until 2005 before launching Trediberri with his son. Renato Ratti was one of the great historical figures of Piedmont wine, a true repository of Barolo wisdom and tradition. Ratti was Federico's mentor up until Ratti's untimely death in 1988. When you taste Trediberri's wines, you sense that somehow that generations-old wisdom made it into the bottle that you are drinking.

You can also taste the terroir. Trediberri specializes in La Morra, the village known for producing Barolo's most elegant and aromatic wines. Indeed, Federico likes to compare his wines to Chambolle Musigny, and you get it right away from your first pour: a burst of that magic red fruit/floral combination wafting upwards from the glass. Drink the wine and you encounter the crunch of serious Barolo: nervy wild fruit, a touch of licorice, a long mineral finish.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

"This is a terrific expression that puts emphasis on elegance and streamlined intensity. As far as this normally plump and succulent grape goes, this wine is lightweight in texture and luminous in appearance. The wine offers a more compact interpretation that ultimately delivers great clarity and grape purity. Tart berry and white cherry segue to light spice and herbal accents of dried mint and basil." -Monica Larner
