*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Just bottled, the 2013 Barbaresco Serraboella is quite closed and reticent today. The 2013 boasts a serious center of fruit and tons of intensity, but it is also raw and not fully formed at this stage. Sweet red cherry, rose petal, mint, pomegranate and blood orange open up in the glass, but only with reluctance. The 2013 is deep, powerful and intense, but readers will have to be patient, as the wine is in no mood to show all of its cards today. This is the wine that most deeply shows its recent bottling. The Serraboella spent 26 months in oak, 70% in cask and 30% in 500-liter tonneaux. Drinking range: 2020 - 2033 Rating: 95 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Oct 2016)
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.
