An expressive version in a modern style, yet refined and harmonious overall, with the grippy finish echoing the ripe fruit and tarry mineral character. Drink now through 2027.”

Barolo DOCG
Nebbiolo
Red wine
Italy, Piedmont
750 ml
SAQ code: 12465905

“Oberto's 2013 Barolo is supple, forward and absolutely delicious. Now with a year in bottle, the 2013 is super-expressive. Sweet red cherry, plum, leather, rose petal and sweet spice infuse the succulent finish. The straight Barolo is done in a mid-weight, accessible style that has quite a bit to offer. In other words, it is everything an entry-level Barolo should be. I loved it. Best from 2017 through 2025.”
