Named after the truffle fields Giulia's grandfather planted on the property before her father replaced them with vineyards. La Tartufaia is a divinely atmospheric truffle forest in the heart of La Morra where Giulia’s vineyards run parallel. The wines produced here, from clay-rich soil, are textbook examples of classically structured Barolo typical of the area. Rounded tannins, salty minerality, and pure Nebbiolo fruit make this wine an essential selection for any cellar, especially in such a stellar vintage.
Vineyard Crus: A blend of 80% Serradenari cru and 20% Brunate cru (Brunate cru grapes are purchased, 40-year-old vines) Exposure: West at 460 meters (1509ft) Soils: Tortonian with clayey loam soil with a strong presence of sand Winemaking: Spontaneous fermentation (with some 40 days of maceration) in 60-HL truncated cone-shaped wooden vats. Maturation: 24 months in 25-HL Slavonian botti
2018. the 2019 is not yet scored: 90 pts Wine Advocate The Giulia Negri 2018 Barolo La Tartufaia is subdued on first nose with aromas that build slowly. They start off with dark fruit and plum and gradually transition over to toasted spice, tar and asphalt. Its delivery to the palate is thin and polished.
