The grapes of Barolo come from the prestigious Cru Fossati, where Lapo Berti jealously guards his small parcel. The bottles produced are just over 300 per year. The grapes were harvested in the first half of October, destemmed and pressed in the morning after being left in the box overnight so as to obtain some hours of prefermentation on the skins. The grapes are left to ferment spontaneously in 600 l tonneaux. open, exclusively with fulling and at a maximum temperature of 26/27. The skins remained in contact with the must for 3/4 weeks, unscrewed in steel for the malolactic fermentation also spontaneous. Then coarsely removed and transferred for elevation in used, neutral barriques. No additions of tartaric acid, tannins were made

Lapo Berti La Morra

We met Lapo Berti in our Enoteca. He opened a couple of bottles of his Barolo and told us his story: he has been working in the wine sector for over 17 years and he has been around to acquire the professional baggage that today he puts into practice in the vineyard and to his cellar. He begins his journey to the Farmhouse Selvapiana, in Chianti Rufina, He moves after three years from Corzano & Paterno to San Casciano in Val di Pesa. Then it is the turn of the Morra where he meets and works with Roberto Voerzio and Enzo Boglietti, with whom he establishes a relationship of friendship that today leads him to manage two vineyards of his property, the Fossati and the Bricco Rocca. But his passion and research also pushes him to the court of Nicolas Potel and then Michel Picard, two great interpreters of the Pinot Noir of Burgundy. But the curiosity of reading the wine from all points of view allows Lapo to work in Australia, with oenologist like Sthepen Pannell, David Bicknell and Steve Webber. Fascinated by this "round of the world", we have been tempted to taste Barolo with an open and free idea. And Lapo Berti's desire to vince nebbiolo grapes in the future and Nebbiolo from Barolo in several Lang cruuses is perfectly expressed in the glass that identifies not a territory and not even a commune, but a precise photograph of two different vineyards.
