"Cigliuti is arguably the most under the radar estate in Barbaresco when it comes to looking at the wines and comparing quality with visibility in the market... Silvia and Claudia [Cigliuti] continue to turn out absolutely gorgeous wines. " - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
AboutClaudia and Silvia Cigliuti follow the philosophy of their parents, Renato and Dina, with love and care of the vineyards first and foremost in everything they do. With their parents alongside them, they oversee the production of the wines from start to finish. Renato is a genuine farmer, born in 1938 and educated to primary level before undertaking his life work. In the post-war years, when many of his contemporaries left the countryside in search of work, he stayed to cultivate his great passion. As he puts it, separating himself from the land would have been like tearing himself away from his family. The estate is only seven-and-a-half acres, and he's worked it practically every day since childhood.
