Sordo Barbera D’Alba 2020

14% abv

Vol- 75cl

Ruby red colour with garnet highlights that grow more evident as years go by; delicate, alcohol-rich, intense, full and lingering aromas; warm, full flavour,complex, dry and harmonious

From vines of 15-25 years old in Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d’Alba at altitudes of 250-300 metres. Once picked the grapes are crushed and de-stemmed before undergoing a two week submerged cap maceration. The wine is vinified in stainless steel befroe a further 6 months ageing in stainless steel followed by 3 months in bottle prior to release.

The Barbera grape variety first appeared in the Langa Hills in the early 1900s, when the arduous task of reconstructing the vineyards destroyed by the phylloxera was taken up throughout the region. Being quite rustic, it adapts well to the environment and the particular composition of the area’s soil.

Sordo was founded in 1912 by Giuseppe Sordo, the present owner’s grandfather, and is now under the guidance of its third generation, Giorgio Sordo, with his daughter Paola by his side. Situated in the district of Castiglione Falleto and overlooking the slopes of La Morra, Sordo is unique in that it bottles 8 Barolo Cru wines, the only producer able to do this in the entire region.
As well as bottling traditional varieties such as Dolcetto and Barbera, they also produce the peppery Verduno Pelaverga, one of the smallest DOCs in Italy. The whites comprise the region’s historic Arneis, along with Chardonnay, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc, which as well as being bottled separately go to make the captivating Rapujè Bianco. They also produce a Barbaresco from several plots in Barbaresco, Treiso and Neive.3 hectares, covering the areas of Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d’Alba, Monforte d’Alba, Barolo, Novello, La Morra, Verduno, Grinzane Cavour and Vezza d’Alba. Tradition and terroir lay at the heart
of Sordo. Giorgio makes wine in a very similar way to his grandfather; after a gentle pressing and fermentation at around 30C, the wines continue to macerate for around 40 to 50 days, after which they are matured in large Slovenian oak barrels, which range from 50hl to 120hl and are used to preserve the unique essence of each cru.
