This is one of those I want to go on smelling – no rush to put it in my mouth. Super-fine dry texture, still all compact and only beginning to open. Paper-fine texture but compact. Great length and precision and all till to come. Drinking range: 2019 - 2035 Rating: 18 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com (Nov 2015)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Nutty, smoky nose. Traditional, stolid build. 2020-2030 Rating: 16 Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.com (Dec 2013)

The 2009 Barbaresco Serraboella fleshes out beautifully on the mid-palate, with generous, radiant fruit and compelling richness. Here, too, Cigliuti has done a fabulous job of capturing the personality of the year while maintaining plenty of Nebbiolo typicity and structure. This is easily one of the best wines in what has turned out to be a challenging vintage for Barbaresco in general. The Serraboella was aged in a combination of 60% cask and 40% French oak barrique and tonneaux. Here, the style of the wine and vintage marries well with the oak. 2014-2027 Rating: 92-94 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 2013)

Cigliuti

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.
