Giovanni Giordano founded his Piedmontese estate — not far from the city center of Barbaresco — in the 1930’s when the world of Italian wine was in flux. Originally established to grow and sell wine grapes, the property was strengthened by Giovanni’s son Luigi, who carried on his father’s hard work. In 1958, Luigi made the daring decision to keep his fruit and make wine under his own label. At the time, it was nearly unheard of for an independent grower to bottle their own wine, especially when plans had only just begun regarding an official Barbaresco appellation. Today, this forward-thinking and bold-spirited tradition is upheld by Luigi’s daughter Laura and her son Matteo, who have continued to guide the estate towards producing expressive, terroir-driven wines that speak to their origin

Luigi Giordano’s Langhe Nebbiolo is sourced from one of the estate’s Barbaresco vineyards with soils composed of clay and marl mixed with silt. The wine is aged for 12 months in cement and concrete before bottling. Light ruby in the glass, this Nebbiolo offers a gorgeous bouquet of bright red fruits accented with dried herbs and floral notes. The palate is fresh and lively with flavors of red plum, cherries, strawberries, and raspberries complemented with a touch of earth and black tea. Tannins are firm, but fine-grained and buoyed by vibrant acidity, all leading to a balanced, elegant finish. Perfect for a plate of cured meats and cheese, though just as delicious with pizza, tomato-based pasta or lighter meat dishes.
