Behind the original concept for Barolo, there is the need to orient different shades in a single direction. In fact, the most classic producers have always avoided putting the individual expression of the vineyard ahead of the choral vision, capable of restoring an idea of coherence and integration right from the beginning.
It is on the wave of this traditional impetus, then, that we decided to make the two faces of the appellation – the kind one of the region’s western slope and the more austere one typical of the land looking east – coexist in the same glass. The decision to sketch the lineaments of an entire terroir in a single wine gives us a bold liquid, rich and virile, capable of exhibiting its character in youth and challenging its development with the right impulse.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Ceretto Barolo 2017 is a powerful red wine. On the nose it is complex, with aromas of plums, flowers, hazelnuts and dried nuts. On the palate it is firm, full-bodied and elegant. Satin and silky. Firm tannins. Very flavoursome.

Gorgeous plum aromas with flowers and hints of hazelnuts and dried nuts. Full-bodied with firm tannins. Goes on for minutes. So solid. From organically grown grapes. Surprisingly tight and structured. Needs time to open. Try after 2023.
