Giulia Negri Marassio Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

$125

Giulia took the helm of the family estate when she was just 24 years old. She quickly realized she needed to move in a more classic direction, bringing in large botti to replace small barrels and converting her vineyards to organic farming. Her vines are perched high in the hills of La Morra in the Serradenari cru, cresting over 536 meters on nutrient-poor limestone soil. These are some of the highest vineyards in all of Barolo and the cooler microclimate here helps add an extra pique of freshness to her Baroli. Frankly put, Giulia crafts hauntingly pure and lithe Nebbiolo from these windswept vineyards. These are delicate wines with minerality woven through them that reflects not only the land they come from but also the unique skill of the woman who made them. After only a few vintages under her belt, we are already convinced that Giulia Negriandnbsp;is going to be a very important figure in Barolo's rising generation. Marassio is a selection of Giulia's highest vineyards within Serradenari, an area with less sand and more pure limestone in the soil. Vinified in the same manner as the Serradenari, Marassio is the most delicate and mineral of Giulia's wines.
