Sorì della Sorba

Sorì della Sorba

Sori translates to “Cru” – the highest, best exposed vineyard, where the sun is strongest and the snow melts first. Sorì della Sorba vineyard is a south-facing amphitheater, where an expansive oak forest full of native trees, flowers, and animals surround the vineyard. Just 3.7 hectares are planted to local varieties – nebbiolo, dolcetto and barbera – with plantings dating as far back as the 1950s.
In 2019, Giovanna Bagnasco and her life partner Carlo Mondavi took the reins at this estate, and set about immediately converting the farming to organic with an eye towards permaculture.

Sori della Sorba is centered in the winemaking area known as Diano D’Alba. Half of Diano D’ Alba lies within the world famous Barolo wine region, and Sorì della Sorba is just outside of the famous DOCG. An area of great, world-class potential which is capable of sitting alongside the world’s finest.

This site, among the hillsides of Piemonte, hosts an incredible biodiversity of wild flowers, native grasses, wildlife and an expansive truffle forest that infuses its beautiful microflora throughout our estate. Rooted in ancient limestone soils mixed with clay, sand and rock this site allows for wine of incredible expression, structure, vibrancy and elegance.

Carlo and Giovanna look forward to sharing their wines with you.

Description

Sorì della Sorba is a special estate bottling dedicated to the purest representation of our site in wine, dedicated to the King of grapes varieties, Nebbiolo. Sorì della Sorba is the historical name of this vineyard site, and highest reflection of our land going back to the first whispers of this indigenous variety in the 1200s.

In Piemontese dialect a “Sorì” is the special designation of greatness, or “grand cru”, and translates to: “where the snow melts first” which often means south facing and highest on the hill.

The 2020 vintage shows lifted aromas of crushed black cherries, rose petals, wet rock, savory herbs, and forest floor. On the pallet, the wine builds with wild berries, rose petals, orange pith, and damp forest floor and truffle. Fine grained tannins build as they hold together the delicate floral notes to an everlasting finish.
