Fratelli Cigliuti dates back to a time when Renato’s father and his brother sold grapes and wine in bulk to local private customers. In 1964, Renato Cigliuti, the current owner and winemaker, inherited the estate and was the first to bottle his family’s wine. The estate remains family owned and run, now into its fifth generation with daughters Claudia and Silvia. Cigliuti is situated on the Serraboella hill, 350 metres above sea level, overlooking the village of Neive, in Barbaresco. The territory of Langhe is characterised by hills, steep slopes and a predominantly calcareous clay soil. The climate is mainly continental, with important differences in microclimate depending on the site. This terroir brings minerality, complexity, personality and longevity to the wines.
