Limited new release                                                    
Inaugural release from Giovanna Bagnasco (proprietor of Brandini in Barolo) and Carlo Mondavi (grandson of Robert and proprietor of Raen in Sonoma) - extremely limited.

93+ Points Robert Parker: "The Sori della Sorba 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo is beautifully bright and pure. The wine strikes at the heart of the Nebbiolo grape, offering you a slice of its very essence, completely unadulterated by any outside factors. The bouquet reveals spicy fruit, blueberry and light cassis. Background tones of rusty earth, terracotta and pressed blue flowers also appear. You might recognize crushed white pepper and grilled herb. This biodynamic expression of Nebbiolo captures the most honest and transparent side of this noble Piedmont grape. Production is 3,441 bottles, 40 magnums and three jeroboams. That said, with this inaugural release, you'd be lucky to find one at all."

In a steep, raw territory caught between the breezes of the Mediterranean Sea and fresh air of the Italian Alps is where the story of Sorì della Sorba begins. ‘Sori,’ meaning Cru, or the best vineyard, is the highest, best exposed vineyard, always south facing, where the sun is strongest and where the snow melts first. It is in this apex position that the Sori della Sorba vineyard sits, just 500 meters from the villages of Barolo, centered in the winemaking area of Diano D’Alba. Theirs is a site of great, world-class potential capable of producing wines that sit alongside the world’s finest.

 In 2019, Giovanna Bagnasco (proprietor of Brandini in Barolo) and her life partner Carlo Mondavi (grandson of Robert and proprietor of Raen in Sonoma) took the reins at this estate, and set about immediately converting the farming to organic with an eye towards permaculture. The first results, in a word, are stunning. A single-vineyard Langhe Nebbiolo of such elegance and finesse as to make Barolo producers jealous! The Sori della Sorba site gives wine of incredible expression, structure, vibrancy, and elegance and 2019 was a perfect year for a serious wine of finesse and length. The estate’s premier release is fragrant from the moment opened with dried rose petals, crushed cherries, white tea, orange pith, wet rock, fennel seed, truffle and forest earth. All these notes are held together with its incredibly fine grained, lasting tannins. Powerful and energetic in its youth, the 2019 Sori della Sorba will continue to evolve to heightened levels for decades to come.
