Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby-red turning to light purple hue, due to the ageing in barriques. The nose shows oaky notes well-integrated with hints of plum and cherry. Warm sensations in mouth thanks to its high alcohol content, with rich toasty notes of ripe fruit and jam. Sour and long finish due to its typical varietal acidity.

Critical Acclaim

JS 90
James Suckling

Bright violets and lavender are the focal point on the nose. Otherwise, this is quite fruity and lightly tannic with a touch of some firmness on the bright finish.

Fabio Oberto La Collina di Dioniso Winery Image

Andrea Oberto grew up working on his family’s farm in the small town of La Morra just South of Verduno but spent the early part of his adulthood as a truck driver outside of the family business. When his father passed unexpectedly, he returned home to manage the farm and devoted his life to tending to the 3 ha of vineyards he inherited from his father. In 1978, Andrea shifted the estate’s focus from supplying fruit to the local co-operatives to making its own wines.

After 22 years working with his father at the family winery, Fabio Oberto has started a business of his own: Fabio Oberto 'La Collina di Dioniso' gives continuity to the family's vision of making wine true to the great terroir of the area, shared by farmers with same ideals, ambitions and values.

An historic village situated right in between the famous regions of Barolo and Barbaresco, Alba is also the name for the larger wine region surrounding the village.

In a sense, “Alba” is a catch-all phrase, and includes the declassified Nebbiolo wines made in Barolo and Barbaresco, as well as the Nebbiolo grown just outside of these regions’ borders. In fact, Nebbiolo d’Alba is a softer, less tannic and more fruit-forward wine ready to drink within just a couple years of bottling. It is a great place to start if you want to begin to understand the grape. Likewise, the even broader category of Langhe Nebbiolo offers approachable and value-driven options as well.

Barbera, planted alongside Nebbiolo in the surrounding hills, and referred to as Barbera d’Alba, takes on a more powerful and concentrated personality compared to its counterparts in Asti.

Dolcetto is ubiquitous here and, known as Dolcetto d'Alba, can be found casually served alongside antipasti on the tables of Alba’s cafes and wine bars.

Not surprisingly, given its location, Alba is recognized as one of Italy’s premiere culinary destinations and is the home of the fall truffle fair, which attracts visitors from worldwide every year.

Friendly and approachable, Barbera produces wines in a wide range of styles, from youthful, fresh and fruity to serious, structured and age-worthy. Piedmont is the most famous source of Barbera; those from Asti and Alba garner the most praise. Barbera actually can adapt to many climates and enjoys success in some New World regions. Somm Secret—In the past it wasn’t common or even accepted to age Barbera in oak but today both styles—oaked and unoaked—abound and in fact most Piedmontese producers today produce both styles.
