|2013 BARBARESCO: ‘AN EPIC VINTAGE OF CLASSIC PROPORTIONS AND SUPERB PEDIGREE’ – ANTONIO GALLONI|
“About decade ago, at VinItaly, I first discovered Luigi Giordano’s Barbarescos. A friend of mine was starting an import company and he asked me to taste his new discovery. Giordano’s Barbarescos of were hands down the standout wines of the fair. Unfortunately, my friend lost out on importing the estate and it has taken years before we have seen them on the West Coast. The 2013 vintage in Barbaresco is outstanding, among the best in recent years and the Luigi Giordano wines are once again the standouts… especially at these prices! I have always felt Giordano’s Barbarescos are some of the best ‘bang for the buck’ and value driven Barbarescos out there. Giordano is an old school, wonderfully traditional Barbaresco producer who highlights the elegance of Nebbiolo and the beauty of the specific vineyards.” – Lance Montalto, The Wine House
