Barbaresco Serraboella
SERRABOELLA

Serraboella is the most famous cru in the Southern Neive. A long hill exposed to West that gently bends towards South getting steeper. On this very side: the steepest and the warmest, our Barbaresco has a unique expression. Power, volume are laced by a elegant texture. In our Barbaresco two vineyards contributes to this wine. The most mineral and rough character the one that shares a border with the Bricco, named vineyard ‘d Tourun. He meets the fine and elegant one from the more sheltered position, named Schiena d’Ernestin.
