Serradenari is a Menzione Geografica Aggiuntiva (Cru) in the official Barolo Map, recognized as “historical vineyard of specific, well-defined boundaries, which has been producing limited quantities of a fresh, elegant Barolo of extraordinary quality since 1880.”
A document dated September 30, 1880, describes Serradenari as the place "where there is about five days' worth of Barolo and Barbera." Today, just as of yore, the vineyards cover 55,600 square meters, almost 14 acres, of land at altitudes varying from 450 meters (1,476 feet) to 530 meters (1,738 feet) above sea level. Serradenari’s are the highest altitude bunches of Nebbiolo grapes in the Barolo district. They yield “the world’s highest Barolo” . In our days, the Negri family ( www.giulianegri.com ) has turned Serradenari into a boutique winery to produce a limited quantity of wine (30,000 bottles a year) that is the fruit of careful selection, experimentation, and craftsmanship.
Sergio Molino – a real master of wine - follows grapes and wines step by step. The wines produced here using millennia-old techniques are not only representative of classical Piedmontese enology and the ancient winemaking culture of the Langhe, but they are also the highest expression thereof.International Ratings Barolo MeGA (cru) Official Map MeGA
