While the name Gagliardo is somewhat new to Barolo’s terrain, the estate itself has been around since 1847, trading under the name of its founder, Paolo Colla. Gianni Gagliardo married into Paolo’s family in the 1970s and by the mid-80s had altered the name to his own, signifying a change in guard and in style. The Gagliardo winery is located in the picturesque area of La Morra, which produces 31% of the total Barolo made, its style delicate, perfumed and quite subtle. It is also home to the highly regarded single vineyard site of La Serra. Gianni’s sons, Stefano, Alberto and Paolo, have all taken up significant roles within the business.
