These wines are Piedmontese to the core, ultra-reflective of the poor, but limestone-rich soils and northernly climate with cool nights. All from organic vineyards. Each wine has a reason for being; each wine has extreme drinkability without losing seriousness or intrigue. They are concentrated in their fruit, but also have a lightness and florality that feel very "Iuli."  In the cellar, Iuli's trajectory over the years has become increasingly non-interventionist. Fermentations are carried out spontaneously, with a little so2 added after malolactic fermentations. The tradition in the area is to use concrete tank and large oak casks.

Umberta is 100% Barbera and the so-called "entry-level" wine at Iuli.  Coming from south-facing vineyards planted between 1940 and 1999, it is typically harvested the first week of October.  Vinified in concrete with 20 days of maceration.  Aged in concrete for 10-11 months, with an additional three months of bottle aging.
