Barolo "1961", Ciabot Berton - 2018

Item # 40128 750mL

1961 marks the year when the Oberto family began their current era of estate-bottling their production in their then new winery. They are located in the La Morra commune and today boast a mere 12 ha of prime vineyards in the region. This "1961" commemorative bottling comes from the best parcels of their Nebbiolo vines from the historic Roggeri, Bricco San Biagio and Rive crus.

So enjoy it now, in ten years, or anywhere in between.
