Vineyard Serraboella

The 2014 Barbaresco Serraboella has quite a bit more volume and greater breadth than the Vie Erte, as it so often does, along with quite a bit of tannic heft. Here, too, readers will have to be patient, as the 2014 is austere, unyielding and massively tannic. Dark cherry, plum, tobacco, smoke, licorice and dried herbs are some of the many notes that inform this decidedly virile, potent Barbaresco. Readers who can wait will be rewarded with a super-expressive wine. Drinking range: 2024 - 2039 Rating: 94 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 2017)

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

Deep garnet. Autumnal undergrowth – not a usual aroma in 2014 Barbaresco. Then broad bright sweet fruit. Lots to chew on. A very sincere wine somehow. But not for immediate drinking. Drinking range: 2019 - 2028 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 2017)

Cigliuti

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.
