This is a silky, smooth Barolo, delicately scented with roses and violets, showing great aromatic complexity. It can be enjoyed only a few months after bottling, but will continue to improve and develop in elegance for 15-20 years.
-For most, Ceretto is predominantly recognized for its extraordinary red (and white) wines, estate vineyards, exceptional quality, unique and architecturally modern wineries, and design. However, upon closer examination you will discover a whole other world, where our homeland, the Langa hills of the Piedmont, is protagonist with its collection of rare and precious gastronomic gems.
“This is where things start getting tricky. The 2009 Barolo Brunate opens with savory aromas of barbecue smoke, cured meat and crushed granite, although there is not much fruity brightness to hope for long cellar aging. In fact, slightly gritty tannins and tertiary aromas inspire me to drink this sooner rather than later. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.”
