Giulia Negri "Serradenari" Barolo 2013

Giulia Negri "Serradenari" Barolo 2013


Regal, elegant, small production Barolo from rising female winemaker Giulia Negri. Nebbiolo from the Serradenari Cru of La Morra yields a Barolo of outstanding pedigree. The elevation, coupled with a complex mosaic of soils unique to this part of the Langhe, sets the stage for Giulia to create Barolos marrying delicate floral aromas and elegant fruit with a deep mineral foundation. With fine-grained, tightly knit tannins, her seductive wines charm

Upon Giulia’s arrival at the helm of the estate, the modest cellar was filled with small Burgundian barriques. After tasting all around the Langhe and learning from some of Barolo’s most distinguished growers, it quickly became clear that large casks were key to preserving Nebbiolo’s tension and mystical energy. With the goal of maximizing an honest expression of terroir, she has gradually replaced the smaller barrels with botti grandi. Her artisanal approach and espousal of traditional production methods extends to sustainable viticulture, eschewal of commercial yeasts and other additives, harvesting by hand, minimizing filtration, and long but gentle macerations in the cellar.

Enticing aromas of rose petal, woodland berry and dark spice are front and center. The energetic palate doles out red cherry, juicy cranberry, cinnamon and tobacco alongside youthfully austere refined tannins and vibrant acidity. Drink 2022–2033.
