Charles Lea was horrified when I asked to taste this – “It’s so young, it’ll be – “ he squeaked and did one of his full-body horrified tasting notes. It IS young but 2019 seems to be a generous vintage and this nebbiolo is also fruity and wonderfully perfumed. I liked it; Charles liked it. Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Nov 2020)

This Langhe nebbiolo is so blooming delicious and polished that everyone should buy a bottle this Christmas. Fragrant with rose petal, oregano and sweet tobacco, this is barbaresco in all but name.Jane MacQuitty, The Times (Nov 2020)
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.
Nebbiolo must be one of the world's great grape varieties, but it rarely thrives with any virtue outside of its native Piedmont. It is, of course, the variety behind the great wines of Barolo and Barbaresco, but there are other Nebbiolos at less lofty prices that offer that signature combination of big-boned tannin and structure and delicate violet and tar fruit. Here we offer 'declassified' Barolo from Andrea Oberto, 'declassified' Barbaresco from Sottimano, as well as the Australian 'Hairy Arm' Nebbiolo that will surprise all!
