Stefano Gagliardo: Barolo and Family, a Class apart.

Stefano Gagliardo's family make some of the finest expressions of Barolo from vineyards (Piedmont: NW Italy) that his father Gianni took charge of in the 1970's. The very best land is essential to producing quality Nebbiolo grapes and that's what we find every time we are fortunate to taste a Gianni Gagliardo Barolo.  

In this podcast Stefano explains the intricacies involved in working the land organically with an increasing emphasis on biodynamic principles. He also tells us how he microvinifies some of his finest plots to make unique wines that answer solely to their tiny terroir, as MEGA designated Cru wines (Menzioni Geografiche Aggiuntive -additional geographic mentions), why he favours large barrels and lots lots more. 

The Gagliardo team and family. A class act.

Nebbiolo continues to hold sway as Italy's finest grape and Barolo it's finest wine. Alongside these Gagliardo has always worked with the Roero Arneis, Favorita (a Vermentino grown away from the sea!) and Moscato to make white wines, Nebbiolo for Langhe Nebbiolo, Barbera for an Asti of that name and now also for the new Tenuta Garetto label from the equally new  NIZZA DOC- one of my favourite styles of Barbera ever!   

  "Our land is alive and clean.        We take care of our vines  one by one, because each one is different from the others.         We make wine by seeking the minimum technical intervention, following the principle of knowing more in order to be able to intervene less.      In wines we seek balance, elegance, purity of expression. If a wine does not satisfy us, we do not go out on the market".

While all restaurants in Ireland are closed right now they WILL open again. We all hope that this is soon. We should remember that many of these, including the wonderful Monty's of Kathmandu, are family businesses. They are often small and brilliant and when they do reopen they will need our support more than ever. Keep Safe and Keep well. 

Kevin Ecock's WinePod is brought to us with the assistance of the Santa Rita Wine Room at Monty's of Kathmandu - an excellent place to host your next event or celebration.
