The wine has a rosé colour tending to cherry red, delicate and brilliant. Its bouquet is fine, elegant, with floral notes of red roses and fruity scents of apple and citrus, delicate hints of green pepper. The taste is fresh and aromatic, slightly tannic, with a good acid-alcoholic balance. Warm and having a good structure, it lasts on the palate.
A stone’s throw from Barbaresco’s village centre, the winery and its vineyards were founded by Giovanni Giordano in the 1930s during a time of profound crisis in the Italian wine world. After a period of growing and selling grapes, Giovanni’s son, Luigi, made the bold decision to vinify his own grapes in 1960. Luigi Giordano is now a fourth-generation winery whose vineyards are planted in some of Barbaresco’s most prestigious crus, including Asili and Montestefano. One particular Barbaresco bottling from the cru of Cavanna showcases the winery’s elegant, hands-off style of winemaking and currently represents the only single-vineyard cru of its kind on the market.
