Fratelli Cigliuti Barbaresco

The cru of Serraboella occupies slopes south-east of, and across from the town of Neive. It is shared between Cigliuti and PAITIN.

There is a relatively limited use of small new oak, primarily for the Barbera d’Alba Mervisano and the three Barolo crus, Vigna Rocche Meruzzano, Vigna Montersino and Vigna Rongallo. […]
