Lapo Berti. Barolo del Comune di La Morra

Lapo Berti. Barolo del Comune di La Morra

Barolo DOCG del Comune di La Morra
Grape: Nebbiolo

A Barolo with intense aromatics; rose, red berry and spice.  The tannins are fully mature and give a deep structure, around which the minerality of Fossati, and light, fruit purity of Bricco Rocca dance. 14%

The wine comes from two plots in La Morra: Bricco Rocca and Fossati. Fossati is on the western side of La Morra, it has a deserved reputation for long-lived wines with finesse as well as weight, a very different beast to its neighbour, Sarmassa (in the commune of Barolo).  Bricco Rocca is a little lower, where the aspect of the slopes provides the vines with excellent exposure to the sun, producing wines with finesse and balance, softer and more floral in style.  The soils in both crus (plots) are similar: lowish sand (25%), highish levels of clay (39%), iron levels are high in Fossati.

2017 is a much misunderstood vintage, it was very hot and dry, but the previous year wasn’t and reserves of water were good.  The vines showed no stress, the berries were a little smaller, it was a very good vintage.

2013 produced a number of challenges: the spring was cold and wet and summer started late, this meant the fruit set was late and not as generous as usual. Fortunately, September and October were warm and dry and the Nebbiolo ripened perfectly.
