Ciabot Berton Barolo 2016
Ciabot Berton Barolo 2016 from 8wines
Cellar for up to 6 years. Decant two hours before serving. This gorgeous Barolo exudes tart red cherries, sweet spices and rose petals on the nose, while the first sip reveals a firm structure, vibrant acidity and generous plum, strawberry and raspberry flavours. The wine undergoes a lengthy period of maceration before spending at least two years in Slovenian oak casks to soften and integrate the Nebbiolo grape’s characteristically high tannins. The balance between freshness and well-developed tannins make this bottle an excellent choice to complement a wintry game stew or a grilled fillet steak. While this Barolo is surprisingly accessible now, several patient years spent resting in the cellar will allow this wine to reveal its full glory. With 12 hectares of vineyards in La Morra, Ciabot Berton is a relatively small Barolo producer located in the heart of the renowned appellation. The Oberto family who own the estate have a noble Barolo heritage with a recorded presence in La Morra since 1200. Although the family planted vineyards here in 1876, the Obertos sold their grapes on to local wine producers until the 1960s when Luigi Oberto decided to produce his own wine from the family’s fine Barolo grapes. The estate is now managed by Luigi’s children, enologist Marco and agronomist Paolo.
