Azienda Agricola Pugnane dei F.lli Sordo

The Azienda Agricola Pugnane was founded in 1950, in Castiglione Falletto in the heart of Barolo country, by Enrico Sordo the father of the present day owner who runs the company together with his sons Franco and Enrico. The Sordo family produces great quality wines with great enthusiasm and effort. One of the most obvious characteristics of Piemontese viticulture is the large percentage of vineyards established on hillsides to better enjoy the perfect microclimate that accounts for the structure and character typical of these wines. Of the existing 10 hectares, 5 have been planted with the Nebbiolo grapes for Barolo, three with Barbera and two with Dolcetto. The quality and purity of a wine are the result of hard work – initially in the vineyards and then of course in the cellars. Modern technology now complements the Piemontese wine processing tradition.
