About this wine
To produce the Barolo DOCG Lazzarito “Vigna Preve” Poderi Gianni Gagliardo the harvest begins around mid-October and the vinification takes place at a controlled temperature of 28/30 ° C. The wine ages in wood for at least 5 years. The Vigna Preve vineyard is located on the highest crest of the Lazzarito, in the municipality of Serralunga d’Alba. Being on the top of the hill it is particularly exposed to light and wind, and gives a deep, powerful wine with a tasty and persistent sip.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.
