The name means ‘sunny side’ (sorì in Piedmontese) of Rio Sordo, a cru long recognised for its elegance. This 1.7 hectare vineyard, planted in 1969, is perfectly situated south south-west. Aged one year in oak barrels and barriques, previous to one year in the bottle. Intense, concentrated aromas of ripe red berry fruit, wild roses, violets and liquorice with some herbal notes. The palate is complex and structured, nicely framed by juicy acidity with a long persistent finish.
