Nervi & Trediberri

8 products

A newer name in the context of the historic (read: transcendent) La Morra section of Barolo, Trediberri has a passionate trio behind it, dedicated to crafting profound examples of the legendary terroir. Winemaker Nicola Oberto's father had family vines just outside of La Morra in Torriglione, and knowing his local terroirs well, Nicola, his father Federico and their partner smartly purchased 5 hectares in the historic section of Berri within La Morra. Limestone soils with sandstone interwoven create a unique clay-like soil, and was historically held to be a highly desired terroir; many of the vineyards were abandoned after the second World War, only to be revitalized by the trio who replanted it in 2007. With the vines coming of proper age, the resultant wines are highly perfumed with great finesse and astounding potential. 

Speaking of revitalization, go scan your Italian textbooks once more and check out Gattinara - a historically important zone. in Northern Piedmont, and Nervi was the oldest grape-growing family in all of Gattinara, the vineyards dating back to the 17th century. What sets Gattinara apart from Barolo is that it's almost exclusively volcanic soils rich in minerals, and the wines have a distinct spiced mineral tone to them, and will age for countless decades - wines from the 60s and earlier are still cranking!

Roberto Conterno needs no introduction; his purchase of the Nervi estate in 2018 seemingly removed the ceiling for the already-impressive wines, and Contenro is dedicated to elevating the quality to his impeccable standards in Barolo. Early returns are impressive, as the traditionally rustic wines have a new hue of approachability while staying true to the region's structure and age-ability. If you can't tell, we'll be hoarding these!
