'Fragrant and chock–full of finesse, this radiant red opens with enticing scents of rose, woodland berry, dark spice and a whiff of wild herb. The vibrant, elegant palate delivers juicy red cherry, strawberry compote, licorice and hints of hazelnut set against taut polished tannins. Bright acidity keeps it balanced. Drink 2024–2036.' – Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, 95/100 (Jan 2020)

'Fragrant with macerated cherry, rose and even a hint of truffle, this expressive red is approachable now for its alluring aromas. Fluid and full of cherry and currant flavors, it has refined tannins and harmony. Mint and earth accents mingle on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2043.' – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 94/100

'This Barolo opens to smoky and flinty aromas that cover some of the fruit intensity. The Giulia Negri 2016 Barolo Serradenari shows a tart and spicy side with small-berry nuances underneath. The entire approach is soft and delicate with a mild and soft-footed impact on the palate. The tannins are dusty and finely textured. This Barolo wraps quietly and softly over the palate. Drink 2022 - 2038.' – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 92/100 (Jul 2020)

Winemaker Giulia Negri
Drink to Long-term cellaring
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.'
