Tibaldi

Monica and Daniela Tibaldi are two young sisters who took the plunge in 2014 to produce wines from their family vineyards. It was Monica who got into wine first, studying oenology in Alba, working for a year for big producer, Fontanafredda, and completing her masters in Madrid.

She persuaded Daniela – an accountant by training – into the new venture via a vintage in Marlborough, New Zealand and a sommelier course. In fact, they are the fourth generation of the family to grow grapes, their father, Stefano, and grandfather, Tunin, still helping out in the vines. Located at Pocapaglia, 25 minutes west of Alba, they are in the heart of the Roero region which they feel, with better promotion, should be on a par with Barolo and Barbaresco. Pocapaglia means ‘little straw’ so, with its distinctly sandy soils, it’s probably better wine than wheat country! They specialise in grapes typical of the Roero region, championing the traditional local grape, Favorita; “It’s Riesling-like” says Daniela. They have close to 7 ha in total, located in three distinct zones. Firstly Mormore, with its sea shells and fossils, is great for Favorita. Secondly Bricco delle Passere lends itself to Arneis. Thirdly at Santa Vittoria d’Alba, the Coste Anforiano vineyard above the Tanaro River, has more clayey soil and is therefore ideal for reds, Nebbiolo and Barbera. The vines are cultivated organically and certification is awaited. “We love the fruit, me and Monica,” says Daniela “so we don’t use any wood except on a small cuvée of Roero Nebbiolo.” Their wines are fresh and delicious indeed.

Vintage guide

A dry winter followed by a hot summer has certainly affected yields in 2022, but the quality looks excellent across the country. Small but perfectly formed seems to sum up the 2021 vintage here. Across most of the country the 2020 vintage is looking very good indeed with ripe fruit and lovely aromatics. A classic if not straight forward vintage 2019 has delivered some excellent wines but in smaller quantity. Overall, the results are very good in 2018, though a warm wet early summer led to disease pressures in many parts of the country. The Northeast, home to Prosecco amongst others did particularly well; so too did Tuscany and Piedmont but yields were a little down in some estates. 2017 saw a small crop of excellent wines; spring frosts and a later heatwave nicknamed ‘Lucifer’ reduced yields, but you’ll find good results on the whole with excellent results in Piedmont. Yields were down in 2016 but quality is high, Piedmont and Tuscany at least as good as 2015. 2015 is generally an excellent vintage across Italy, perhaps reds having the edge over whites. A year that necessitated a lot of work in the vineyards due to the rains, 2014 produced some surprisingly good results with elegant fresh wines across the country.
