Description

Barbaresco DOCG is produced every year from the 100 hectares of vineyards controlled by the Produttori within the appellation, mainly in the Barbaresco village itself.

In the best vintages, the historical crus are vinified separately. Rio Sordo is a long, South/West exposed hillside in the southern part of the Barbaresco village, not far from the river.

The light limestone soil with relatively low calcium content compared to other areas of Barbaresco produces wines where tannins are never dominant; instead, they show a silky quality on the palate that makes them extremely attractive and seductive, never imposing, always elegant.

Behind the smooth elegance however, lies a core of powerful structure and very well balanced tannins that give to the Rio Sordo its complexity and longevity. First produced as a single vineyard by Produttori del Barbaresco in 1978.
