Known for its sensational Barolos, Poderi Gianni Gagliardo boasts 30 hectares of vineyards including sites in top Barolo crus like Lazzarito, Castelletto, Monvigliero, Mosconi and Fossati. The estate was founded by the Colla family who had been making wine in Piemonte since at least 1847, but the property’s name comes from Gianni Gagliardo who married Paolo Colla’s daughter, Marivanna, committing himself both to the family and to the vines. Today the estate is run by Gianni’s three sons. The Gagliardo philosophy has remained little-changed since the 1960s when Paolo Colla made the estate’s first Barolos; the family seeks to make wines that are above all enjoyable to drink while expressing the unique qualities of their top vineyard sites. In the vineyard the family use biodynamic practices and minimal intervention is the norm when the grapes arrive at the winery to express the purity and intensity of their top quality grapes. In 2017 the family purchased the 15 hectare Tenuta Garetto in Monferrato’s Nizza appellation. This subzone in the Barbera d’Asti hills offers exceptional terroir for Barbera and will allow the Gagliardo brothers to expand and further enhance their portfolio with the estate’s old Barbera vines.
A majestic Barbera della Langa and Roero, a river of red wine marked with garnet reflections. Clear and consistent wine with scent of ripe fruit, peach, apples. Fresh dry taste, robust wine and balanced tannins and easy to drink with a persistent finish.
In the glass it's a wine with a beautiful intense ruby red color, while on the nose its perfume is pleasant, floral and fruity with hints of dried rose, ripe red fruit, berries and coffee. In the mouth it is elegant, complex, balanced, harmonious, pleasantly tannic, persistent and confirms the fruity notes perceived on the nose.
Classic Piedmontese wine of ruby red color with violet reflections. The impression on the nose translates into the complexity of aromas, leaving the mind wandering in the middle of a field of flowers and cherry orchards, vineyards of ripe fruit. The taste on the tongue and on the palate conveys freshness, the roundness comes from tannins that are scarcely astringent by nature.
