On the nose, layers of dark fruit and morello cherry followed by a complex, dense yet rounded mouthful of earthy, smoky black fruit with grippy tannins. Drinking range: 2017 - 2019 Rating: 89 Decanter Magazine (Jun 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.

Another fine vintage of this effortlessly pretty and unusually graceful Nebbiolo, which plays up its beautiful pure raspberry fruit and floral qualities but which doesn't lack for depth or the variety's love-it-or-hate-it sandpapery tannic texture and piercing acidity. It's drinking beautifully now, but it has the stuffing to keep for at least a decade. Rating: 91 www.thewinegang.com (Mar 2017)

Cigliuti's 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo is a terrific entry-level wine. If anything, the Langhe Nebbiolo is a very serious wine at this level, as it has considerable tannic clout underpinning the fruit. Lifted aromatics, finely sculpted red fruits and firm tannins are front and center. Deceptively understated, the 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo packs a good bit of energy and intensity into its mid-weight frame. The Langhe Nebbiolo is a tank of Vie Erte Barbaresco juice given a shorter aging time of five months in tank and five months in cask. For all intents and purposes, it is a Barbaresco in all but name.

Cigliuti

Our introduction to the wines of Cigliuti was a bottle of their ‘Briccoserra', a 50/50 Barbera and Nebbiolo blend, many years back in Giuseppe Turi’s restaurant ‘Enoteca Turi’. 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.
