Sordo is an iconic winery with 100 years of history. It is a family run estate and one of the biggest privately own estates in the Langhe. The estate comprises 53 ha of land and produces 8 Barolo crus, among which the famous Monprivato. The company is based in Castiglione Falletto, surrounded by some of their vineyards. Giorgio is the third-generation owner, managing the vineyards himself while the wines have always been made under the supervision of the well- known oenologist Armando Cordero, who worked at Sordo until his death, some years ago.
Today the new winemaker follows the protocol left by Mr Cordero. He works alongside Giorgio who is an active participant of the winemaking process too. Sordo is a traditionalist, focusing on the production of very elegant Barolo, aged in big Slavonian botti. His uniqueness is the possibility of producing wines that show the same style of wine making across the different terroir ranges, thus expressing what the precious heart of the Langhe zone can offer.
