The Azienda Agricola Giovanni Sordo is to be found in the heart of the well-known Barolo region, in the municipality of Castiglione Falletto – just few kilometers away from Alba, in the province of Cuneo. It’s a family-run winery, between the third and the fourth generation, now in the capable hands of Giorgio – Giovanni’s son – the third generation of a family who has been tending and producing wines for more than a century. The estate was founded in 1912 by the great-father Giuseppe, but the real turn over came with his son Giovanni who – together with his wife Maria, the real witness of the family’s story – bought several vineyards of Nebbiolo for Barolo - the Sorì in Piedmontese language – among the best in the Barolo wine district. The soil of these vineyards – a compact calcareous marl – is rich in micro-nutrients which – together with the unique microclimate of the Langhe region – creates a perfect environment for the growing of Nebbiolo grape. It is a vigorous and difficult grape which can give amazing wines with powerful aromas and great aging potential.
Today the Sordo family owns 53 hectares, spreaded out in the municipalities of Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d’Alba, Monforte d’Alba, Barolo, Novello, La Morra, Verduno, Grinzane Cavour and Vezza d’Alba.
Sordo is unique: it is the only existing winery which can boast 8 different kinds of Barolo – the crus – whose vineyards are located in the areas of 5 different municipalities in the Barolo wine district.
Only last generations equipments for the fermentation, storage and bottling are used at Sordo’s, together with a huge cellar – 135 big barrels from 50 to 120 hl – to ensure a perfect maturation and aging of the wine.
Big barrels, made with Slavonian oak, are the secret of this centenary winery: this wood – thanks to its gentle feature – is not invasive with the wine which keeps its authentic taste so that what you will find in your glass is the real taste of our terroir. This is what tradition means – to carry on an habit that our ancestors tought us – just like the Sordo family has been doing for more than a 100 years.
Every single step of the production – from the vineyards to the cellar – follows exactly the process given by the tradition – which has been the mainstay of the family ever since.
