Langhe Rosso Monsordo Rosso DOC

The Monsordo Bernardina Estate in the 90s underwent significant ampelographic changes. Alongside the traditional varieties, a series of foreign varieties were planted; the idea was to observe their potential and limitations in the region of Piedmont, and their capacity to strongly exhibit expressiveness and performance in in the glass. After several years of singular production, in 1997, the project became to create a unique wine blending the varieties that were best acclimatized to the region. From that moment Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah, each made separately, were aged in wood and then blended in varying percentages depending on the year, and put in the characteristic bottle that bears the name of the estate.
Monsordo is a wine with a relatively modern character, able to express the characteristics of its component varieties but also strongly influenced by the Langa terroir: an international wine but with a distinctly Piedmontese accent.
