Specification

The farm of Sordo Giovanni, now run by his son Giorgio, is situated a few kilometres from Alba at the foot of the Barolo hill, in the municipal district of Castiglione Falletto, in Cuneo province. The family business has been engaged in wine growing for over three generations. It was founded in the early 900s by the present owner’s grandfather Giuseppe, but the real turnaround came with his father Giovanni who, together with his wife Maria, testimony of the firm’s past, acquired numerous vineyards in some of the finest areas of Barolo territory: ’’i Sorì’’. The lands of these vineyards, made up of very deep and compact calcareous marl, rich in micro elements, provides an ideal environment, with the complicity of the micro climate typical of the Langhe, for the cultivation of Nebbiolo, an extremely vigorous and demanding varietal which produces wines of great prestige, age-worthy and rich in fragrance. Today, the firm extends over a total surface area of 53 hectares planted with vines, distributed in the municipal areas of Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d’Alba, Monforte d’Alba, Barolo, Novello, La Morra, Verduno, Grinzane Cavour and Vezza d’Alba. The firm is equipped with modern plants for wine-making, storage and bottling. An impressive ageing cellar, fitted with over one hundred high capacity oak barrels, enables the wine to mature and develop perfectly. All production processes, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, can depend on the tried-and-tested traditional methods handed down to us by our ancestors.

An extraordinary colour of intense ruby red with pervasive garnet reflections indicating a young wine, not yet touched by the effects of the early years of maturation. A transparent and brilliant wine with a generous and noticeable formation of “church windows” and tears running copiously down the sides of the glass: an indication of its pronounced alcoholic strength and abundance of extractive substances. The bouquet is self-assured, intense, pervasive and broad-based. It tells of delicate hints of ripened fruit, cacao, fine woods, mint and sweet spices. In mouth, we experience an initial sensation of intense heat that is pleasing and almost sweet. A noble and austere wine thanks to the presence of mature tannins which blend well with its pronounced flavour and generosity. A note of excellence is provided by a slow development which promises and guarantees an extremely long life and further positive evolutions of its olfactory and in-mouth sensations, already quite remarkable. An extraordinary wine of great structure, very well-construed and precisely orchestrated. The long, intense lingering of its aroma confers great class and nobility.
