A serious treat, Giribaldi’s Nebbiolo comes from another single vineyard, Conca d’Oro, which means ‘golden valley’, a reference to the beautiful gilded colour of the vine leaves in the early autumn. It’s a glorious wine with juicy but rounded redcurrant and cherry flavours, a wood-spice nuance from time spent in oak barrels and a satisfyingly long finish.
No wonder Nebbiolo is often described as the finest red grape of northern Italy! Enjoy it while young or age it for several years to soften and mellow it further, and match it with roast beef or beef Wellington, game casseroles and strong hard cheeses.
Giribaldi wines are a family affair, they are made by Mario Giribaldi, the third generation of the family. His wines are a reflection of the people who make it, those who work in the vineyard under the all-day sun, or in the cold winter snow. Those who work all day and night in the winery during the harvest to watch the wine slowly transform, those who dress the bottle and look after its image, those who are ambassadors and pass on the passion of those who made it.
The Giribaldi winery began at the beginning of the 20th century and has been producing wines for three generations. In those days, times were hard, and agriculture was not only a means of income but also a real pride for those who loved their land even though it made them suffer so much. It was normal for them to make sacrifices for the land they were brought up on.
