There is such precision here! Floral, violet scent and then a tension of very fine tannin both lifts and gives a welcome lengthening seriousness to the delicate yet intense fruit. L&S (Nov 2013)

Claudia and Silvia Cigliuti make one of the finest versions of dolcetto. Where others can be aggressively herbaceous, this is a seductive wine. The floral, expressive nose makes you want to dive in for a sip and when you do, damsons and a delicate hit of spice are to the foreHamish Anderson, The Telegraph (Jun 2014)

Freshly cut flowers, dark red berries, mint and licorice waft from the glass in the 2012 Dolcetto d'Alba Vigna Serraboella. This is a classic, mid-weight Dolcetto in its aromas and flavors. The Dolcetto is done in steel and its recent bottling has muted some of the bouquet, but another few months should help the elements come together even more. With some air, the 2012 opens up very nicely. This is a beautiful wine from Cigliuti. 2013-2018 Rating: 89 Antonio Galloni, (Nov 2013)


Sisters Claudia and Silvia Cigliuti took 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.
