Gigi Bianco, Piemonte

The Estate

Gigi Bianco winery is one of the oldest in Barbaresco. Founded in 1870, they bottle their crop since the early 50's of last century. The vineyards are managed with an almost natural approach, they leave grass in the vineyards and don't use herbicides or any kind of chemical products on the soils. The fermentations take place spontaneously by means of only native yeasts. Ageing in big oak vats for at least 2 years. Low sulphites and no filtering. hey have about 3 ha mostly in the Pora and Ovello cru, where they produce Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Barbaresco Pora and Barbaresco Ovello. The cellar is in the center of Barbaresco, right under the medieval tower


Position, purity and patience

The People

Gigi Bianco passed away few years ago, but his daughter Susanna and his wife Maria Vittoria are perpetuating the style and possibly improving the clarity of the wines.
