Serradenari Barolo 2014
It’s hard to think of many young talents whose star is rising faster than Giulia Negri in Piedmont. Not only is she charismatic, but she also makes exceptionally graceful renditions of Nebbiolo from her domaine’s many different terroirs. This Barolo comes from Serradenari, the appellation’s highest cru. More specifically, it comes from Giulia’s sandiest parcel, which she says “was one of the first vineyards that showed me the terroir effect in Serradenari.” The result is an elegant, floral, and succulent Barolo that will age beautifully but is exquisite now, especially after half an hour in a decanter.
