Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 Barolo is a good representation of the wines from the La Morra for its elegance and extraordinary expression of territory. The wine is a garnet red with ruby highlights, presenting an extremely rich and varied nose expressing floral and spicy notes integrated with small black fruits, resulting in an appealing and complex bouquet. The structure representative of the vintage is evident in the mouth, presenting considerable tannins and alcohol balanced by a pleasant acidity. In some aspects, the wine is reminiscent of the Barolo wines from the 2000 vintage, immediately approachable, but exhibiting a complexity sure to last for many years.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Barolo Brunate is a gorgeous, refined wine. An expressive, open bouquet melds into dark, sensual fruit. The Brunate possesses gorgeous delineation, wonderful inner perfume and polished tannins that frame the majestic finish. In this vintage the French oak is also exceptionally well-balanced. The freshness, vibrancy and overall sense of harmony elevate the Brunate into the top tier of 2007 Baroli. This beautiful, aristocratic Barolo is the finest young wine I have tasted from Ceretto in a long time. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2032. "
96 Points

"Blockbuster intensity is delivered here in part thanks to the dense soils and concentrated style associated with the Brunate cru, and in part due to the warmth and power of the 2007 vintage. Lingering tones of vanilla, sweet spice, red cherry and soft chocolate fuel a long, luscious finish."
94 Points

"Pure fruit on then nose, with dried strawberries and chocolate and white truffles. Full and insanely fruity, with juicy fruit and a balance of ripe tannins. Such wonderful here. Racy and powerful. Best after 2013. "

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
