Vineyard Serraboella

A big, rich wine, 2015 Barbaresco Serraboella is shaping up to be a real beauty. A host of dark cherry, plum, mocha, dark spice and leather overtones race from the glass in a sumptuous, ample Barbaresco that holds quite a bit of promise. Today, the French oak is a bit dominant, but I also tasted an approximate blend of the final wine, and not the final wine itself. It will be interesting to see where the 2015 ends up once it is in bottle, but there is plenty to look forward to. Rating: 91-94 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 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.
