2015 saw an exceptional growing year in Barbaresco, and Luigi Giordano's '15 Barbaresco Asili is an exceptional wine. Pressed rose petals, warm earth, crushed herbs, peppery spices, and touches of leather and black tea frame the juicy, pure red and blue fruits in this spellbinding Barbaresco Asili. Savory minerality joins the wine's sweet fruits on the palate, while sturdy tannins and brisk acidity provide terrific structure for aging. Cellar for a year or two and then enjoy for decades. Deriving from the estate's southwestern-facing, clay-rich vineyard in the famed Asili subzone, grapes ferment for about two weeks in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for 18 to 24 months in botti before resting in bottle for six months prior to release.

Luigi Giordano Description

Four generations of Giordano winemakers ago, Giovanni Giordano founded his small vine-growing estate near the center of the Barbaresco township. While its beginnings came in the 1930s, the Luigi Giordano winery saw the start of its modern era in the 1960s when its namesake (and Giovanni's son) made the bold choice to estate-bottle his own wines. These days, Azienda Luigi Giordano continues to craft its traditional wines from its sustainably grown Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa, and Arneis grapes. Hard to find in the States, Luigi Giordano's Barbaresco bottlings are true insider's wines, and the winery's 17 acres have enviable holdings in Barbaresco's Montestefano, Asili, Ronchi and Cavanna. Luigi Giordano is precisely the kind of winemaker that IWM loves; even better, this small family-owned-and-operated producer crafts high-quality, affordable Barbaresco wines.
