Nestled in the tiny hamlet of Sorano, in the Serralunga d`Alba subzone, La Contrada di Sorano is a newly established winery, brainchild of a young couple, Paolo and Cristina. This young and passionate duo have decided to make this tiny plot of land their new home. The inaugural vintage 2015 is a testament to their commitment to the natural environment surrounding their property. Applying a minimal intervention approach to the winemaking, this eclectic duo manages to craft a unique Barolo, which graces the palate with tons of wild herbs, bramble fruit and velvety tannins. The wine lingers on the palate, revealing notes of black tea and kirsch on the finish. This is as natural as Barolo can get, with minimal sulphur added and well judged use of old oak. The inaugural release has been produced in a ridiculously tiny quantity, just 733 bottles have left the property in...
“A darker, more structured Barolo than his sibling, Prapo’ is an incredibly pure expression of the terroir of Serralunga. Precise notes of red and black berries, forest floor and dark spices are framed by tight woven tannins and lively freshness. An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Winesmore
