More information:

Ciabot Berton means ‘Berton’s small building’ and is named after a ruined building that overlooks the vines of this La Morra property which is owned by the Oberto family. The Oberto name has been associated with vine-growing in this area since at least the 12th century but it is really since the late 1950s that the family bagan to bottle their own production. Now overseen by siblings Marco and Paola, respectively an oenologist and agronomist by training, the philosophy is to marry their father Luigi’s deep knowledge of the different vineyard sites, with the most relevant modern techniques and technologies that they have learned through their studies.

The aim is to produce wines that express their vineyard terroir, unique in each vintage and with the stamp of the family’s way of working. These methods are primarily the use of organic techniques in order to attain and maintain equilibrium and healthy vines in the vineyards and an emphasis on slow ripening and allowing the grapes to hang as long as possible in order to achieve phenolic ripeness, especially for Nebbiolo.

The vineyards all lie in the prestigious historical cru of La Morra: Roggeri, San Biagio, Rive, Cappallotti, Pria and Rocchettevino, on the slopes facing towards Alba.

The soil is largely composed of Marne di Sant’Agata, which belongs to the Tortoniano group. These are marls or loams, bluish-grey in colour, which have become greyish-white through the action of the weather. The composition of these mixed clays, made up of the finest sand with chalk components, is found everywhere except on the Bricco di San Biagio. The soil on this hill can be identified as stemming from the sandstone Arenarie di Diano d’Alba, which consists of deep layers of sand alternating with thin strata of clayey-sandy marl.

The old Dolcetto vineyards, with an average age of about 40 years, spread over roughly a hectare with eastern exposure in the sub-zone which almost completely surrounds the winery. This is where Dolcetto d’Alba Rutuin comes from (Rocchettevino, from the Piemontese). Pure, lifted blueberry nose, floral, touch of spice. Palate, light bodied, crisp acidity, medium plus finish, great purity.
