The territory of Barbaresco, in the southern part of Piedmont, has become synonymous with great wine, joining its neighbour Barolo, with its famous nebbiolo grape variety, in the firmament of Italian reds.
The Cigliuti family embodies the strong peasant tradition of a vineyard that is exceptional for its history and reputation. The Cigliuti family - Renato, his wife Dina and their daughters Claudia and Silvia - embody the strong peasant tradition, in the noblest sense of the word, that characterises the Langhe region and particularly the village of Nieve, in the Barbaresco appellation. The vineyards of the estate (7.5 ha) are divided between a south-western exposure, with a chalky soil favourable to nebbiolo and dolcetto, and a south-eastern exposure with a more clayey soil favourable to barbera. The wines are well made, dense, deep and sincere.
