Each grape is vinifed separately and blended with the utmost care. A nose of spice, peach and almonds and in the mouth, power, finesse and depth. This is a true study in character and equilibrium.

2013 Barolo "La Tartufaia" Giulia Negri Magnum

"'Serradenari is a cru within the La Morra cru of Barolo, and is the highest point in the Barolo zone. It is also the name of Giulia's family estate, which she was just entrusted with in 2014 at the age of 24. 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. "La Tartufaia" is a blend of 80% La Morra Serradenari and 20% Brunate crus, Aged 24 months in 25hl Slavonian oak barrels, named after the truffle fields Giulia's grandfather planted on the property before her father replaced them with vineyards." --importer Kermit Lynch
