Trediberri is a partnership of three lads who tend their vines in the Barolo appellation of Berri. Tre di Berri. They also have access to fruit in the amazing Rocche dell’Annunziata, Capalot, and Torriglione. The focus is on high quality, organically grown Barolo. They also produce Barbera, Rosato, Sauvignon Blanc too.
Their Rosato is a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera. What I love about this wine is its beauty in simplicity approach. Cranberry, anise, rose petals are all present and on the palate you find a juicy mid, fine tannins and a savoury finish. The colour is deep but it is actually quite a subtle wine.
Known as one of the greatest wine regions in the world, its name literally means the ‘foot of the mountain’. Piedmont in the North-Western reach of Italy. There are many parallels drawn between the best wines of Piedmont (Barolo and Barbaresco) and the wines of Burgundy. The region neighbours France and Switzerland with its border defined by the Alps to the north and west and Apennines to the south. These natural defences were used to keep the Ligurians safe from Roman invasions. But luckily it didn’t work forever, as we may not have the wines that we cherish today.
A recent ‘catch-all’ addition that allows greater flexibility to producers in the established DOC & DOCG regions (such as Barolo and Barbaresco). Used by producers wanting to blend native with international varieties, experiment with aging lengths and newer winemaking practices.
Famously producing long-lived red wines which are light of colour, but abundant in tannin. Barolo and Barbaresco in Piedmont are the most famous appellations. Nebbiolo is all over the Langhe, and North Central Italy. You can find decent Nebbiolo is Australia now. Typical flavours include Tar, roses, anise, cherry, blackberry and truffle.
Barbera makes approximately half of the red wine made in Piedmont. Look for currants and blackberries, liquorice and oak characters.
