Cigliuti Barbera d'Alba "Serraboella" '16

The key to any great producer are their vineyards, and Cigliuti which is located in Neive in the Barbaresco DOCG zone, happens to farm two of the very best Cru's, Bricco di Neive and Serraboella. Claudia's hard work in the vineyard and her sister Sivia's hard work in the cellar help produce classically styled wines, with great drinkability and for the Barbaresco, great aging potential.  Within their top Barbaresco vineyard, Serraboella, are Barbera vines as well, average in age at about 25 years old.  Barbera is often overshadowed by Nebbiolo, but its inclusion in wines for everyday drinking, is a must. The wine is fermented in stainless steel, and aged in a combination of large cask and 2nd and 3rd use barrique. Gorgeous red fruit, hints of anise, and spice, it is medium bodied, but remains fresh and energetic.  If you were in Piedmont, this would be what would be served daily.  Its versatility lends itself in various ways with various dishes that aren't necessarily strictly Italian.
