Barolo DOCG 2015, Piedmont Italy

A wonderful example of Nebbiolo from the Barolo appellation. This was a challenging vintage that began with heavy snowfall in the spring. However, as is often the case, lower yields lead to beautifully concentrated wines full of finesse. Expect floral highlights on the nose before a rich palate and long, herb-tinged finish. Ready for drinking now but with lots of ageing potential remaining.

Gianni Gagliardo, Piemonte, Italy

The history of the Gianni Gagliardo estate can be traced back to 1847, when the Colla family first began working vineyards in the area. At that stage, grapes were sold to other local winemakers. However, in the 1960s, fourth generation grape grower Paolo Colla took matters in to his own hands and began to bottle his own wine.

Paolo’s daughter Marivanna married Gianni Gagliardo in the early 1970s and together they established the winery in its current form.

Nowadays the sixth generation of the family is at the helm, headed by their sons Stefano (oenology), Alberto (viticulture), and Paolo (business).

Over the years, Gagliardo has gradually purchased land in many of the best vineyards in the townships of La Morra, Verduno, Barolo, Serralunga, and Monforte d’Alba, the very heart of the Barolo appellation, and in Monticello d’Alba in the Roero district. Vineyards are always acquired with the same objective in mind, to uncover the finest possible expression of Nebbiolo that each individual terroir can offer.

The Gagliardo brothers now preside over 23 hectares of vineyards, producing some of the regions finest wines. They have always based the management of their vineyards on maximum respect for the vines and the soil, highlighted by their conversion to organics in 2017. In order to offer the drinker as accurate an insight as possible to their unique terroirs, no selected yeasts are added during fermentation. Additionally, all their wines are left unfiltered, instead they are naturally stabilised by a cold winter in the cellar.

Due to the relatively small scale of our cheese and condiment producers, occasionally some cheeses and condiments may be unavailable and we will have to substitute them with similar products. Please state in the notes on the Cart page, if you do not wish to have any substitutions.
