Product Description

100% Nebbiolo from 19-year-old vines from the Barbaresco cru of Bricco di Neive. The site is 350m above sea level on calcareous and sandy soils. The fruit is fermented and macerated in steel vats at controlled temperatures before maturation of 26 months in Slavonian oak barrels.

Cigliuti's 2016 Barbaresco Vie Erte is absolutely gorgeous. In 2016, the Vie Erte stands out for its distinctive spiced profile and that extra kick of mid-palate richness the wine has acquired now that the vines are nearly twenty years old. Vibrant and energetic, the 2016 has enough pedigree to age well for a number of years, although, quite frankly, it is very delicious right now. The sweet floral, minty and spiced notes that are so typical of this site really come to life with a bit of time in the glass. Although it was only bottled recently, the 2016 is quite expressive. Naturally, it will be even more so in a few years' time. 94 points Antonio Galloni

Cherry, mint and liquorice, dried roses and spice. It’s succulent, fleshy and very charming, silty tannin and cocoa richness, minty perfume runs through it, as does a volume of fruit and ample flavour. Finish is sticky with tannin, and laden with sage and red fruits. It’s kind of showy, but very good. 93 points The Wine Front
