Wine of the Week - Montaribaldi Barbaresco "Sorì Montaribaldi"

This classical Nebbiolo hails from the Montaribaldi estate's home vineyard - a special wine indeed. Aged for two years in oak, with another six months in bottle, the Barbaresco "Sorì Montaribaldi" is a complex wine with structured tannins lending elegance. Notes of red fruits are accompanied by cocoa, vanilla, and tobacco, and the finish is full and persistent. This is a hallmark wine of Piedmont.

In 1968 Pino Taliano founded Taliano Guiseppe. He acquired vineyards throughout the Piedmont and his desire was to create a diverse array of holdings that could highlight the different soils, climatic conditions and traditional varietals of the Piedmont. In 1994, Pino’s son Luciano took over the reins and changed the name of the family business to Azienda Agricola Montaribaldi. The name Montaribaldi refers to the ancient Roman road that linked the winery to the different vineyards throughout the Piedmont, thus creating a philosophical and geographical umbrella that tie Luciano’s forward looking Domaine to the rich viticultural history of the region. The vision of the Montaribaldi reflects the mantra of “place over process” and the winemaking is done in such a way as to bring this to fruition.
