2004 MARCARINI BAROLO LA SERRA
"Marcarini's 2004 Barolo La Serra reveals floral aromatics and a candied, spicy quality to its red cherry fruit. Made in a linear, focused style, this taut Barolo offers outstanding persistence on the palate and refined ripe tannins. It is a lovely La Serra. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2022." -91 points- Antonio Galloni- Wine Advocate
"The La Serra cru lies right above Cerequio and offers a glorious panoramic view of the town of Barolo. Poderi Marcarini has a long association with this vineyard and has carefully harnessed the natural aromatic intensity of the fruit grown here. Blackberry, cassis and raspberry are enhanced by spice and vanilla. Itâs a tight, firm wine. Drink after 2018." -91 points Wine Enthusiast
"Medium red with a sign of development. Highly perfumed nose blends redcurrant and plum with notes of truffle, dried flowers, tobacco and brown spices. Silky on entry, then spicy, minerally and firm in the middle, still a bit stunted by the July bottling. This broadens nicely toward the back, finishing with sweet, dusty, fairly substantial tannins." -90 points- Stephen Tanzer- International Wine Cellar
"La Serra, or rather the other side of the Marcarini Barolo production, comes from a historic area of ancient origin whose soil, lacking organic substances, but rich in mineral salts and microelements, that is capable of giving wines good color, structure, and flavorful but never excessive tannins. The particular microclimate is characterized by a slight ventilation with the circulation of fresh and dry air. The ripening occurs a bit later than in the Brunate area, resulting in very elegant and apparently less structured wines, but always generous and rich with intense, ethereal bouquets."
"The fermentation and all phases of maturation follow the same traditional methodology as the Brunate wine. The wine has a garnet-color and ruby-red reflections with a slight orange note. The nose is ethereal, fresh, elegant and very persistent, with hints of violet, rose, liquorice and sweet spices. In the mouth the flavor is long and intense." -Winery
"Our vineyard estates are the winery's center of activity and bear prestigious names such as 'Brunate' and 'La Serra', both situated in the area of La Morra, 'Sargentin' in Neviglie- particularly adapted to the growing of the Moscato grape, 'La Serra' and 'Muschiavino' in the town of Montaldo Roero. Their position and inclination, the nature and composition of the soil, the exposure to the sun and the exceptional microclimate are all fundamental requirements to obtaining excellent wines. The different vineyards, all owned by Marcarini, are cared for with particular attention. A system of pruning aimed to limit the grape production has been adopted, as has a maintenance composting with organic substances. We practice a controlled grassing over of the vine rows, and the vine diseases are treated with products strictly based on traditional methods. The grape varieties grown are exclusively Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera and white Moscato. Altogether, the estate covers a surface area of 25 hectares." -Winery

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- Antonio Galloni- 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
