Flagship Barbera Vineyards
Bricco San Biaggio is not only Ciabot Berton’s flagship Barbera, but possibly one of the region’s too. The small hillside of Bricco San Biaggio in La Morra is actually Barolo territory. But Marco and Paola Oberto own a special patch of 60-year-old Barbera vines that produce excellent wine. If they were to grub them up and planted Nebbiolo they could charge far more per bottle, but thankfully they’re happier to make wonderful wines than they are to charge premium prices. Most of the 2.5-hectare vineyard was planted 35 years ago, but 0.3 hectares was planted 10 years ago.
