Ciabot Berton Barbera Bricco San Biagio 2019
Ciabot Berton Barbera Bricco San Biagio 2019 from 8wines
Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years. Decant one hour before serving. This luscious Barbera delights the eye with a vibrant ruby red hue and seduces the senses with jammy plums, red cherries and raspberry aromas and flavours. The grapes for this wine all come from the Bricco San Biagio hill where Ciabot Berton own a small vineyard planted with 60 year old Barbera vines. The light sandy soils here help create floral, elegant wines which rank among the region’s best Barberas. Thanks to the vibrant freshness and light oaky touch from the ageing in casks, this is a perfect match for pasta served with rich meaty sauces. Located in the small village of La Morra which is famed for its elegant, finely-structured Barolo wines, the Ciabot Berton winery has built a strong reputation for carefully-made, deeply expressive reds. The family-run estate is cared for by enologist Marco Oberto and his agronomist sister Paola who took over from their father Luigi in the 1990s. Even by Italian standards the Obertos have a deep connection with the land. A La Morra land register dating from 1200 mentions the family name, while references to the Obertos’ involvement in grape growing start appear from 1800. Today Marco and Paola enjoy making refined single vineyard wines, carefully tailoring their approach to get the best from each of their six vineyards. They also continue to use traditional winemaking techniques like long macerations and extended ageing in large Slovenian oak casks as well as practicing organic viticulture.
