In Italian, 'Solo per Amore' translates to 'Only for Love'; a fitting name for this new addition to Sori della Sorba's range given the project was founded on the love of its two winemakers, Carlo Mondavi and Giovanna Bagnasco. These are two talents with some serious pedigree between them. Carlo's grandfather was Napa maverick Robert Mondavi, and he now owns Raen winery in Sonoma, plus Giovanna is Barolo born and raised with her own family project, Agricola Brandini, thriving in the region.
Sori della Sorba is a triumphant partnership that brings together the best of both these worlds, and the results speak for themselves. This enticing blend of Dolcetto and Nebbiolo is layered and nuanced, whils still maintaining the vibrant drinkability that Dolcetto is known for.
This is a new wine for this estate, to celebrate the long-term relationship between Napa Valley’s Carlo Mondavi and Lange’s Giovanna Bagnasco (Brandini, as well as this property). It’s a delicious blend of dolcetto and nebbiolo that’s fruity and generous with a citrusy undertone to the purple fruit, finishing with cinnamon and other spices.
