Vineyard Serraboella

Claudia takes the fruit for this wine solely from the Cru of Serraboella and as a result tends to allow the fruit to sing without too much encumbrance of oak. This is because Serraboella is a special site, sloping down in front of the family property, the Cigliuti's were the first to name the vineyard on their bottles in 1978. Beautifully fragrant and intense with black cherry, blackberry and violets on the nose. In the mouth the wine is generous, with a deep draft of black fruit, but has a fine acid line and chiselled rich tannins, that give lovely structure and definition in the mouth. A joy to drink now but these are fine wines which can age for years too. Drinking range: 2020 - 2030 L&S (Nov 2020)

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.
