Barbaresco is a fantastic red wine from the Piedmont region in Northern Italy. The Cottà vineyard is a historic cru, one of the first to make single vineyard wines. Located in Neive it is one of the best-known areas of Barbaresco. It’s a tiny area, producing no more than 15 hl from the vines that for the most part are more than 50 years old. The clay marl soil produces rich, solid and robust wines which marry well with Nebbiolo.

The Giribaldi "Cottá" 2018 is bright and lifted with tart cherry and floral aromas that rise quickly with intent. The wine's focused approach is exactly what sets it apart. It boasts a direct delivery of wild berry fruit that is polished and brought into focus, thanks to crushed mineral, wild rose and liquorice.

This could be laid down and will keep for at least another 10 years.

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.

More Information


Piedmont, Italy

Piedmont is affected by a tug-of-war between two weather systems: the ice cold Alps and the warm Mediterranean temperature. This variation makes the whole area fill up with morning fog that slowly burns off during the day. This means the land higher up on the hills gets more sun. More sun = happy grapes = good wine. It's why Piedmont (or Piemonte) is considered to be Italy's best wine growing region.


Matteo Giribaldi, Azienda Agricola Mario Giribaldi

Today, thinking of the traditions and love for something alive like wine, I simply continue the work of my father and grandfather with the same passion and devotion. We are a family winery representing the third generation of the Giribaldi wine family, but above all, because we are one big family made up of 10 people, who every day proudly work all together, and share the same passion.



Often referred to as the queen of black grapes, Nebbiolo is the grape of legendary wines such as Barolo and Barberesco. The name derives from nebia which translates as "fog", due to the morning fog which hangs around the vineyards.

The wines are high in tannins, repaying the patient with their ageworthyness. With time they will often develop flavours of violets, herbs, dark fruit and truffles.
