2012 LANGHE NEBBIOLO Cigliuti

2012 LANGHE NEBBIOLO Cigliuti

Grapes: Nebbiolo  Origin: Italy, Piedmont
Lea & Sandeman review
The same selection of fruit as the Vie Erte Barbaresco, aged eighteen months in slavonian oak foudres. Fine and bright fruit, with good tension. Floral and precise, it develops cherry and spice and a fine, subtle length. This is lovely now, but since it is really a Barbaresco with a little less barrel-ageing, it will undoubtedly keep and develop for many years.

Other reviews and comments
The Cigliuti family is renowned for Barbaresco, especially its Serraboella, but we think the humbler Langhe Nebbiolo is hard to beat for sheer deliciousness, verve and Nebbiolo-ness. The fruit is all fragrant plums and cherries, there are glimpses of dried damson and tar, there are soft dry tannins and a clean, fresh finish. 90 www.thewinegang.com

Loads of juicy red fruit here: really shining. Remarkably potent tannin. Sticks to the craw. Needs many years! 2018-2028 17+ Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.com

If there is one of Cigliuti's entry-level wines that is worth an extra bit of effort to find, it is the 2012 Langhe Nebbiolo. A drop-dead gorgeous wine, the 2012 emerges from the glass with sweet red cherries, flowers, mint and spices. The Langhe Nebbiolo is made from parcel in the Erte vineyard and is aged five months in steel and five months in cask. It is essentially Barbaresco with a little less barrel and bottle age than mandated by law. Sweet floral and spice notes add brightness on the finish. 2014-2022 91+ Antonio Galloni, www.vinousmedia.com

Loads of black fruit - such ripeness and intensity. Very finely milled tannin, but it's indisputably Nebbiolo. Gorgeous rose fragrance too. VGV 2014-2024 17+ Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.com

NEBBIOLO - the jewel of Piedmont

Nebbiolo must be one of the world's great grape varieties, but it rarely thrives with any virtue outside of its native Piedmont. It is, of course, the variety behind the great wines of Barolo and Barbaresco, but there are other Nebbiolos at less lofty prices that offer that signiature combination of big-boned tannin and structure and delicate violet and tar fruit. Here we offer 'declassified' Barolo from Andrea Oberto, 'declassified' Barbarescos from Sottimano and Cigliuti, aswell as Bricco Maiolica's cracking 'Cumot' Nebbiolo made in the land between the two great regions.

Richard Hemming April 2014 - the highlights

The cream of the crop from Richard Hemming's glowing review of LEA & SANDEMAN, written for Jancis Robinson MW's web-site. We have selected the 12 wines that shone brightest from among the 52 wines that Richard wrote up. It's an ecclectic and tasty selection, for drinking now and will bring much pleasure over the course of the Summer to come.
