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. The majority of Giulia's holdings are in the Serradenari Cru and are among the highest elevation vineyards in Barolo at 520 meters. Serradenari is contiguous with Bricco delle Viole on the far western edge of La Morra facing southwest. The grapes are hand harvested, fermented in 60 hectoliter wood vats for 40 days, and aged in botti for 30 months.
