2015 Campass Cigliuti
Dark cherry, plum, smoke, licorice, tobacco and menthol infuse the 2015 Barbera d'Alba Campass. A bold, racy wine, the 2015 has much to say, in a more flamboyant, racy style than the Serraboella. The Serraboella emerges from a single parcel of older vines in the Serraboella hillside. The 2015 spent 18 months in oak, with about 50% new French oak barriques. Even at this early stage the French oak is nicely integrated. Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 Rating: 91-91 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Jun 2018)

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.
