Ceretto Barolo Prapò 2001
from Piedmont, Italy
This Barolo reflects the most typical style of the wine's virtuosity and aristocracy. Ethereal nose and aromas of withered roses fail to suppress a slight fragrance of underbrush, which makes it extremely well-balanced and rounded. With its excellent acidity and tannicity, it can have a very lengthy cellar life: 15-25 years.
"Prapo is the most beautifully formed of the Ceretto 2001s, at least at this early stage of development. It offers intense power and length of flavor on a light frame, without any perceptible alcohol to diminish the freshness and succulence of the bright, berried fruit. Tannins direct the flavors without getting in the way, so the wine feels sleek, a tense line of nebbiolo with the amplitude and depth that will sustain it for 15 to 20 years."
Wine & Spirits
"Heady aromas of cranberry, strawberry, red licorice, tobacco, smoke and nutmeg. Very tangy flavors of sweet raspberry, citrus blossom, clove and oak char are crisp and racy. Dried fruit and cedar highlight the bold finish."
