Description

"An iconic winery with 100 years of history to its name, Sordo is one of the largest estates in the Langhe, with 53 hectares of vineyards. It produces eight Barolo crus, including its famous Monprivato – (only Mascarello and Sordo own the Monprivato Barolo Cru).

For nearly 50 years, the family worked with eminent oenologist Armando Cordero. His legacy lives on, and the new winemaker follows his protocol, working alongside Giorgio Sordo, the third-generation owner who closely supervises the entire process. Renowned for his traditionalist approach, Sordo’s wines consistently display the same style across various terroirs, expressing the full potential of the Langhe. He has the utmost respect for the land, using wild yeasts and green manure. Sordo is now in its fourth generation: Giorgio’s daughter Paola works alongside him and represents the winery on social media. Giorgio also recently founded a sister brand named ‘Paola Sordo’ in her honour." Decanter
