Here is one of those tiny, family run wineries in Barbaresco that someone remains under the radar, which if fine by us. While many enthusiasts and critics gravitate to the flagship Barbaresco Serraboella from older vines, IWM remains fixated on the more traditionally-spirited Barbaresco Vie Erte. The wine simply screams freshness and purity of fruit and is one of those wines that pulls you in by the nose hairs with the signature nuances of dried rose petals, mountain flowers, licorice, and red fruit. These flavors are joined on the palate with cherries, spice, cola, tar, herbs, and mineral. This Barbaresco is classically built and rustic, expect to find some tannic grips and punch on the finish. The wine needs a little time or demands some food. For those that like classic Nebbiolo deliver with exceptional value

Cigliuti Description

Cigliuti produces two Barbareschi, the Vie Erte is aged in cask, and the Serraboella, which is aged 60% in cask and 40% in French oak. And while Galloni noted that "the Cigliuti Barbaresco Serraboella is one of the stand outs of the year,"It is the underrated Cigliuti Vie Erte that captured our attention and truly screams traditional Barbaresco. Hand-picked Nebbiolo from 20-year-old vines grown at 350 meters above sea level, placed in large Slavonian oak casks to age for more than 26 months after a twenty-day maceration - it's a process that would make a young Bruno Giacosa smile. A mere 400-500 cases are produced annually.
