Vineyard Campass

The one with the striking lavender coloured label! A single vineyard in Bricco di Neive with twenty-five year old vines. Amazingly this has 50% new wood, but you'd never know. Gorgeously rich, it rolls out quite slowly across the palate, creamy and supple silk-velvet textured damson and plum fruit.

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price discount' for each bottle. Free mainland delivery for all orders over £100.

Tobacco leaf, blackcurrant and cherry. Moderate tannin but full body and there is quite a warm alcohol influence on the finish.
16 (Jul 2016)

Dark fleshy fruit, touch of caramel, mint and macerated plums. Lifting bright acidity, fruit is quite fleshy, again macerated plums and cherries, herbal and with ripeness and length.

Our introduction to the wines of Cigliuti was a bottle (followed over the ensuing months by several more) of their ‘Briccoserra, a 50/50 Barbera and Nebbiolo blend, many years back in Giuseppe Turi’s restaurant ‘Enoteca Turi’. We had remained fans from a distance, and are delighted now to be able to work so closely with the family. Sisters Claudia and Silvia Cigliuti have now taken over the running of this vineyard from their father Renato. He was the first member of the family to begin bottling his own wine, back in 1964, roughly the same time as other pioneers in the region like Giacosa, but the family can trace its roots on this land back to the late eighteenth century. Most of the vineyard and the winery is on the Serraboella hill, looking over Neive from the east, and it is the Barbaresco Serraboella which is the flagship wine of the estate. This hill, composed of calcareous marl and tufa soils, gives classic wines which combine the textural finesse of clay and the length and longevity of wines from limestone. The vineyards are tended by the family, by hand, with low yields to ensure full ripeness every year.
