Luigi Giordano’s small family winery is situated in Barbaresco, among the hills that frame the Tanaro river’s sinuous course, at the very heart of Piedmont’s wine country. Luigi cultivates traditional local varietals on his estate and produces wine from them in his cellars.
The winery’s vineyards are planted over the hills of some of Barbaresco’s most prestigious sub-zones, including Montestefano, Asili, Ronchi and Cavanna. Grape varietals are those typical of this area: the aristocratic Nebbiolo, generous Dolcetto, eclectic Barbera and vigorous Freisa. In addition to these, Arneis- a white wine that has been grown on the most fruitful of the Roero hillsides for many centuries- was added to the repertoire a few years ago.
The winery’s only white, Roero Arneis DOCG, one of the most popular Piedmontese wines on the international market, is produced entirely from the vinification of Arneis grapes.
