About

93

"The Sordo family has assembled an estate with holdings in their home base of Serralunga d'Alba, as well as Monforte, Barolo, La Morra, Novello, Castiglione Falleto and Grinzane Cavour. This wine represents a blend from all of those sites, creating a terrific 2009, its nebbiolo volume turned up high. There's an infectious joy in the fragrant red rose flavors that last through precisely ripe tannins and plush fruit." (12/13)

Product Description:

Wine:
"Garnet red with orange tones more obvious over the years; delicate, ethereal, intense, large and persistent; taste warm, full, complex, dry and harmonious. The wine's austerity is related to the presence of tannins, sweet and complex." - Winery

Winemaking/Maturation:
"The grapes are picked fully ripe and undergo a rigorous selection, the wine-making are started immediately on their arrival in the cellar. The fermentation, submerged cap, according to tradition, is extended for two or three weeks at a temperature of 29-30 degrees C."

"Mature for two years in traditional oak barrels of medium capacity and is aged for at least a year in bottle before being put on sale." - Winery
