Cigliuti Serraboella Barbaresco 2012
Fratelli Cigliuti dates back to a time when Renato's father and his brother sold grapes and wine in bulk to local private customers. In 1964 Renato Cigliuti, the current owner & winemaker, inherited the estate and was the first to bottle his family's wine. The estate remains family owned and run, now into its fifth generation with daughters Claudia and Silvia. We produce approximately 30,000 bottles from our own vineyards of 6.5 hectares.
Nebbiolo is an elegant variety with mouthwatering acidity and a compelling perfume of rose petals, violets, fresh tar, licorice, clay, and dried cherries. Light in color and body, Nebbiolo is a more powerful wine than one might expect, and its firm tannins typically need time to mellow. With age, it develops a velvety texture and a stunningly complex bouquet.
