'Made from high-altitude vineyards in La Morra, this standout red has aromas evoking tilled earth, toasted nut, underbrush and eucalyptus. On the firmly structured palate, assertive close-grained tannins accompany juicy morello cherry, strawberry, hazelnut and tobacco. Give it time to fully develop. Drink 2024–2036.' – Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, 95/100 (Jan 2020)

'I can't find this vineyard on the local maps, but Giulia Negri insists it not only exists but at 530 metres it is one of the highest in Barolo. It's located in La Morra on mainly limestone soils. The nose is bewitching, with lean and floral wild-strawberry aromas. Sleek and fresh, peppery but elegant, it displays a distinctly cool profile and lively acidity. Although no blockbuster, it's very pretty and doesn't lack tannin, structure or length. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035.' – Stephen Brook, Decanter, 91/100 (Jan 2020)

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.'.
