“From a beautifully positioned vineyard in Diano d’Alba, one of the 11 towns that make up the Barolo DOCG, this inaugural release from Giovanna Bagnasco and Carlo Mondavi is one auspicious debut.”

Giovanna and her sister, Serena, are now the faces of Barolo’s Agricola Brandini, in the village of La Morra, while Carlo Mondavi, son of Tim and grandson of Robert, produces acclaimed Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir under his RAEN label. The pair met several years ago, became a couple, and not too long after that, the Sorì della Sorba project was born. This 2019 is a Nebbiolo of exceptional finesse, aged in large Slavonian oak casks and blessed with tannins so refined you might for a moment think you’re drinking high-end red Burgundy. It’s almost as if a Barolo-maker from La Morra, the village known for the most elegant expressions of Nebbiolo, team up with a cool-climate Pinot Noir specialist…oh, wait, we said that already. This ’19 is mesmerizing now and promises to age gracefully for 10+ years—not too bad for a first try!
