2006 CARPINETA FONTALPINO DO UT DES
"Dark in color. Aromas of blackberry and licorice follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a long finish. Very pretty. Balanced and polished. Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Not imported into the U.S. Best after 2011. 1,665 cases made." -92 points Wine Spectator
"It has a color deep ruby, very intense, with persistent delicate perfumes and of ample space. Full-bodied...mature fruit (blackberries, blueberries, plums) and sweet spicies (vanilla, cinnamon and walnuts), chocolate and spices...accompanied to toasted signs (Dutch cocoa, coffee, caramel), to licorice, violet and tobacco." -Winery
"Carpineta Fontalpino has been in Cresti's family since the 1960s. Gioia, 39, took over the estate with her brother, Filippo, 45, in 1990 and immediately set about replanting 44 acres of vineyards. She is currently producing some of the most exciting wines in Tuscany...Cresti is also busy with her work as a consulting agronomist. She collaborates with Carlo Ferrini, one of Tuscany's best-known consulting enologists, at well-known estates such as Casanova di Neri, Petrolo and Sette Ponti, while also consulting for a half-dozen estates on her own." -Wine Spectator article from October 2008 'Special Report: The Best of Italy: 10 Italian Wineries to Watch.'
2005 CIGLIUTI BARBARESCO SERRABOELLA
"The 2005 Barbaresco Serraboella is an intense wine bursting with primary dark fruit and sweet toasted oak. The tannins remain fairly imposing, but the fruit is also fresh, suggesting the wine will age gracefully. This imposing Serraboella is impressive for its breadth and concentration. The wine was aged in a combination of 20-hectoliter casks and smaller French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022." -92 points Wine Advocate
"The Fratelli Cigliuti winery is situated on the Serraboella hill, 350 metres above sea level, overlooking the village of Neive, in the Langhe region of Piemonte, N.W. Italy. Neive is one of the three villages responsible for producing Barbaresco from the Nebbiolo grape. The territory of Langhe is characterised by hills, steep slopes and a predominantly calcareous clay soil. The climate is mainly continental, with important differences in microclimate depending on the site. This terroir brings minerality, complexity, personality and longevity to the wines. The Cigliuti family tend the vineyards themselves, by hand, and in a way which respects the environment. Yields are kept low in order to harvest the finest fruit."
"The vineyards face the southwest and the vines have an average age of 30 years old. Harvest occurs in September. Fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks and one part of the wine is aged in 2000 Liter Slavonian oak casks and another part in barriques and tonneaux. This wine has the possibility to age for 20-25 years. Pair this with red meat, game and aged cheeses." -Winery
