Nebbiolo d'Alba DOCG



Along the left bank of the Tanaro river, in the Roero territories, there are the rows of Nebbiolo wines from the Sordo winery, which give life to a Nebbiolo d’Alba of absolute quality. A red from Piedmont supported by a fruity and generous backbone, then embellished with those pleasant spicy and tertiary tones, originating from a nine-month passage in large Slavonian oak barrels. A sip, finally, also enriched by that subtle minerality that characterizes all the labels of the Sordo winery. A Nebbiolo d’Alba, therefore, that you will find extremely easy to uncork when brought to the table will be those of the land cuisine, to discover a really pleasant red, and particularly versatile and eclectic in food combinations.

Intense garnet red to the eye. The nose initially comes with hints of red berry fruit, then followed by ethereal tones, spicy nuances and references to tobacco. The mouth is full-bodied, warm and balanced, well-worked in the tannic texture and characterized by an excellent length.


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.
