Poderi Gianni Gagliardo are rooted in the history of a traditional farming family that has always cultivated vineyards in high vocation areas in Piedmont. Since 1847 the Colla family has moved from Santo Stefano Belbo, a suited area for Moscato grapes, to Diano d’Alba, which has always been renowned for its Dolcetto grapes, and finally to La Morra, in the Barolo area. It was Paolo Colla, who reached his dream of producing Barolo by buying a small farmhouse with vineyard and starting to make wine with the care and attention that only the passion and respect for the territory can give. The bottling of wines begins just before 1974, when Gianni Gagliardo, his son-in-law, joined the company. The original vineyard was therefore composed of a single plot, the one below the house, in Serra dei Turchi.
Today the plots dedicated to Barolo are 10. They are divided into 5 municipalities and fall under the MeGA Lazzarito, with official recognition of the toponym Vigna “Preve”, Castelletto, Monvigliero, Mosconi, Fossati, Bricco San Pietro, Santa Maria, and of course the original Serra dei Turchi.
Another 5 vineyards, mainly in the nearby area of Roero, are dedicated to other varieties.
The cellar has been developed underground, just below the original farmhouse. In this way optimal technical characteristics are guaranteed, including the exploitation of gravity and constant temperatures with low energy consumption. Moreover, its underground development respects the precious landscape of the vineyards of the Langhe, which since 2014 are UNESCO World Heritage.
The company produces 13 wines, of which 11 are red and 2 white, one of which however deserves a special mention, our Langhe Favorita “Fallegro” has reached the 45th vintage with the 2018 harvest. Of the 11 reds, 8 are based of Nebbiolo grapes, a vine that besides being the most noble of our territory, it is by far the favorite variety of the Gagliardo family.
The family, now composed of the founder Gianni, and the three sons Stefano, Alberto and Paolo, is at the center of the project. The artisanal approach, with great attention to the environment, to sustainability in general, and a great attention to detail in every single phase, are fundamental pillars of the current production approach. In order to operate in this way, the number of bottles is necessarily limited.
The concept of excellence also includes the hospitality and service to people who decide to spend their time to taste the products of Poderi Gianni Gagliardo and visit the cellar. This is taken care of personally by the youngest son, Paolo, who is always present at the winery to welcome visitors who are curious and attentive.
