Average critic rating : 92.0 points



Oberto’s 2003 Barolo Vigneto Rocche is once again superb. This richly-textured wine offers open, perfumed aromatics along with dark cherries, raspberries, dried flowers, licorice and menthol. Made in a full-bodied style, it reveals notable freshness and well-integrated tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018. ||In a region full of outspoken, colorful producers, Fabio Oberto comes across as somewhat shy and introverted. Maybe that’s one of the reasons this estate remains less well-known than it should. Regardless, readers will want to give these wines careful consideration. In most vintages the Barolo Rocche is one of the finest wines from this vineyard. Wine Advocate.October, 2007

Azienda Agricola Andrea Oberto is a small, family-run winery located in La Morra, within the Piemonte region. The estate is comprised of over 16 hectares of vineyards which produce 10 wines, mainly from the Nebbiolo grape variety.


The most revered wines of Andrea Oberto are undoubtedly his Barolo collection, which feature famous crus: Brunate, Rocche and Albarella. The winery came from humble beginnings as for most of his life, Andrea Oberto had two jobs: farmer and lorry driver. After long exhausting days of work, Andrea would go to work on the three hectare vineyard property he had inherited from his father, working towards fulfilling his dream to one day create a family-winery. Eventually the three hectare property that sold juice to a local co-op, became the 16 hectare property it is today, producing 100,000 bottles of fine wine per year.


Andrea Oberto’s passion for his land remains the same, he a faithful worker of his vineyards and runs the winery alongside his son, Fabio. Together, they produce some of the finest examples of Barolo in Piemonte, along with Barbera and Dolcetto. The wines are truly fantastic expressions of Nebbiolo, often with softer, upfront fruit and user-friendliness even when young.
