'The Giulia Negri 2015 Barolo La Tartufaia is a full and generous expression of Nebbiolo with round and ripe flavors of wild berry, redcurrant, spice, tar, rose and potting soil. This wine presents an easy and accessible approach with nicely integrated tannins and enough acidity to keep the palate refreshed. Maybe it is the power of suggestion, but I also get a hint of black truffle in La Tartufaia.' – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 92+/100

'This opens with aromas of violet, red berry and underbrush. The savory, balanced palate delivers red cherry, tobacco and a touch of nutmeg alongside firm but polished tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2022–2030.' – Wine Enthusiast, 92/100

'Vineyard on calcareous clay in the Serradenari cru. 45 days on the skins and aged for 24 months in large oak casks of 25 hl from Swiss cooper Suppinger, Italian Garbellotto and Austrian Schneckenleitner. ‘I wanted Stockinger but there is too much demand and I would never get my hands on it. Then I thought: “why not work with a ‘relative’ newcomer? I'll probably get great quality”.’ Spicy cherry with an iron streak on the nose. Tightly built tannins framing ripe fruit. Long and already approachable, but with good potential too.' – Jancis Robinson, 16/20

Producer information Giulia Negri first produced wines in 2013 under her own label, and from 2015 has taken over the family Serradenari estate. The family has been producing wine for the past 150 years atop Serradenari - the highest peak of the Barolo. The beautiful views from Serradenari stretch across the Alps from Liguria to Mount Cervino with views of the vineyards into the horizon. Under her guidance, the property has become one of the most exciting in Piedmont. Long-aging on the skins in large foudre give the wines traditional styling combined with brilliant purity. Guilia says of her wines 'I produce the Barolo because this wine to me is a work of art that belongs to the future. As to the Pinot Noir and the Chardonnay, I try to make them because I am curious.'.
