Tasting Notes
  • 92 Points - The Wine Advocate

    "Ceretto presents a fine expression of Barolo (with fruit sourced from various sites) in the 2012 Barolo. The wine is redolent of pressed flowers, cassis, dried raspberry and grilled herb. Lighter, more vertical aromas of cola, smoke, campfire ash, dried ginger and toasted anise seed lift gently from the back. The mouthfeel boasts savory, ripe fruit and offers a distant note of succulent sweetness." Monica Lancer

    The 2011 Barolo (with fruit sourced from various vineyard sites and assembled later) is both aromatic and intense. This is a common link that you find across the 2011 vintage with Nebbiolo grape no matter what the desired level of ripeness achieved by the vintner. In this case, the wine shows no jammy, overripe characteristics. Instead, it is well constructed with firm tannins and a thick core of black fruit complexity. This wine made from blended fruit ultimately shows a greater degree of control and management in terms of its ripeness." Monica Lancer
