The 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo is one of the hidden gems in this range, as it so often is. Bright, floral and super-expressive, the 2016 will delight readers in search of a budget-friendly Nebbiolo. The Langhe Nebbiolo is taken from Cigliuti's Vie Erte parcel and is aged for 5 months in cask and 5 months in steel. Only the shorter aging and early release keep this from being a true Barbaresco. Drinking range: 2018 - 2026 Rating: 91 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Jun 2018)

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

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.
