Barbaresco Ovello 2016 – Cascina Morassino
On the top of the main hill facing Barbaresco, Ovello is one of the most important cru in the area. The classical blue marl soil gives the austere, earthy and tannic structure is balanced by a ripe fruit due to the perfect exposure to the sun. Roberto Bianco seems not to care about the endless discussion between tradition and modernity in Barbaresco and Barolo and his wines are a perfect synthesis of this approach. Soft, fruity and round as a modern nebbiolo and tannic, earthy and balasamic.
"Wine without a story is just a fruit juice with alcohol" .... so below you'll find a video of the winemaker.
Don't forget to turn on English subtitles.
