Giovanni Sordo on Snooth

  • Giovanni Sordo Nebbiolo d'Alba 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Hugely balsamic on the nose, which is quite aromatic and fresh with aromas of red frutti del bosco, camphor, and a hint of something a little spicy. With high acids on entry, this comes off as a bit lean, with sour cherry, in a simple, clean and decisive style. the finish is long and fresh, if simple and easy going. 85pts Read More

  • Giovanni Sordo Barbera d'Alba 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Attractively vinous on the nose with mineral and gently smoky aromas that still show a hint of malo. Bright acids temper a little fruit sweetness early on the palate, then this turns mineral through the midpalate, with flavors of red plums and blackberries that are simple but nicely balanced. Acid is present but there's a softness to this wine w... Read More

  • Giovanni Sordo Barbera d'Alba Superiore 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Black berry jam is deep on the nose framed with hints of nutty cola and lots of very subtle prosciutto and herb accents. Almost jammy on entry, theres lots of fruit but but tart fruits, jammy wild berry, black frutti del Bosco that pick up nuanced balsamic, forest floor notes on the palate. This shows attractive complexity, though it comes acros... Read More

  • Sordo Barolo Monvigliero 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky, and a little nutty on the nose with very fine small black fruit and floral aromas that are fairly compact and precise Fruity, soft and elegant on entry this is quite representative of verduno with being quite as perfumed as one might expect. There is good fruit on the palate, red fruited, though this is a bit loose in the mouth with tanni... Read More

  • Sordo Barolo Rocche di Castiglione 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Tight, rosehip, rose petals, a little underlying spice, some sandy soil tones, incipient leather, and bookbinders glue are given nice lift on the nose by a hint of VA. Nicely textured on entry this is fine, elegant, and rounded on the attack. Almost opulent in the mouth the texture is already fairly evolved with flavors of nice tart cranberry an... Read More

  • Sordo Barolo Gabutti 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Deep on the nose with an earthy base and smoky nuance laid over dark fruit with slightly medicinal, fine jerky, spicy, camphor aromas. In the mouth one finds good depth and complexity to the nicely presented wild cherry fruit which is clean and tight with very good tension. While not as firm as one might expect a wine from Serralunga to be this ... Read More

  • Sordo Barolo 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Attractive nose shows classic evolution, subtle, good macerated herb, roasted chestnut and dried sour fruit aromas with mushroom and tobacco top notes. Clay earthiness on entry leads to a nice blend of delicacy and complexity, and while this Feels a touch dry on the palate there is fresh herbal nuance framing small,tart dried berry and red curr...

  • Sordo Dolcetto d'Alba 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Classic if slightly muddy aromas of violets, almonds and ivy come together quite attractively on the floral and spicy nose. Bright acids lead the way in the mouth which shows a lean and fully commercial old school style of tight and raw fruit. This is aged in SS and it shows, and while a bit lean this is very fresh with a hint of tomato in the m... Read More

  • Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More
