A powerful but austere wine from the well-known Cru of Cerretta, located in the northern half of Serralunga. This wine is a treat, and we would recommend drinking this vintage while your 2016s are resting in the cellar.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 94
"The 2015 Barolo Cerretta offers a slightly richer and textured expression from Serralunga d'Alba fruit. The wine is slightly riper compared to the Barolo Baudana from the same vintage, with dark fruit aromas of wild cherry, rose, cola and tilled earth. The wine is similarly tight and firm at its core; however, this Nebbiolo from the Cerretta vineyard offers more succulent padding and volume." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

"Ripe and juicy, displaying macerated cherry and plum flavors, complemented by menthol and rosemary notes. A line of mineral underscores all the elements, revealing a dense matrix of fine tannins on the finish."

"Underbrush, blue flower and menthol aromas form the nose along with a whiff of leather. The palate is still youthfully austere, offering dried cherry, cranberry, wild herbs and tobacco set against a backbone of assertive, noble tannins and bright acidity. Give this time to fully develop."
