Cigliuti Barbaresco Serraboella 2013
VM95: Just bottled, the 2013 Barbaresco Serraboella is quite closed and reticent today. The 2013 boasts a serious center of fruit and tons of intensity, but it is also raw and not fully formed at this stage. Sweet red cherry, rose petal, mint, pomegranate and blood orange open up in the glass, but only with reluctance. The 2013 is deep, powerful and intense, but readers will have to be patient, as the wine is in no mood to show all of its cards today. This is the wine that most deeply shows its recent bottling. The Serraboella spent 26 months in oak, 70% in cask and 30% in 500-liter tonneaux. "Renato Cigliuti produces some of the best Barbaresco you’ve never heard of. He comes from four generations of farmers who have tilled the Langhe soils, and his daughters help him in the cellars today. Serraboella comes from 25 to 55-year-old vines planted 350 meters above sea level. It’s deep, powerful, and intense with a serious center of fruit. 100% Nebbiolo. "
