One of La Morra’s most historic vineyards, giving Barolo wines of extreme finesse, dominated by delicate, floral, spicy aromas.
The Oberto family have been proprietors of around 1.5 hectares (3.7 acres) in Rocche dell’Annunziata for a number of generations. Trediberri currently farms around half of this, with the rest being rented to Renato Ratti since 1972.
We have 3 different parcels, which extend from the road at the bottom of the valley to Barolo at around 242m (795ft) above sea level, to the road leading to Torriglione, at around 270m (885ft). The terrain is calcareous blue marl, with a wonderfully smooth texture, half silt, the rest sand and clay. As the vineyard descends, the proportion of sand increases from around 24% in the highest part to 36% at the lowest point, where we have our Sauvignon Blanc planted on the other side of the road to Barolo.
