The Grappa di Nebbiolo da Barbaresco Sorì Montaribaldi is made
up of fermented marcs (pomace) from Nebbiolo for Barbaresco wine. This golden yellow with amber reflexes grappa is warm, full bodied and well balanced, with a rich and intense bouquet.
After the alcoholic fermentation and the following racking, the wine
is divided from the marcs. The marcs are brought to the distillery
for distillation: thanks to the high temperature, the alcohol and the
other important substances present in the marcs are evaporated
and concentrated. Then, the refining in oak barrels (barriques, 225 L) begins. Eventually, the Grappa di Nebbiolo da Barbaresco Sorì Montaribaldi is bottled and marketed.
In 1968 Pino Taliano founded Taliano Guiseppe. He acquired vineyards throughout the Piedmont and his desire was to create a diverse array of holdings that could highlight the different soils, climatic conditions and traditional varietals of the Piedmont. In 1994, Pino’s son Luciano took over the reins and changed the name of the family business to Azienda Agricola Montaribaldi. The name Montaribaldi refers to the ancient Roman road that linked the winery to the different vineyards throughout the Piedmont, thus creating a philosophical and geographical umbrella that tie Luciano’s forward looking Domaine to the rich viticultural history of the region. The vision of the Montaribaldi reflects the mantra of “place over process” and the winemaking is done in such a way as to bring this to fruition.
