The 2020 Langhe Nebbiolo represents a departure for Cigliuti. Up until 2019, the Langhe Nebbiolo was made from Vie Erte fruit. Starting with 2020, this is made from young vines in Serraboella that were planted three years ago when the Dolcetto was taken out. It shows the depth of Serraboella with the awkward young tannins typical of young vines. Cedar, tobacco, incense and dark cherry linger. Drinking range: 2021 - 2028Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Sep 2021)
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.
