"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)
