Winemaker's Notes:

"Aromas of berries, chocolate and coffee. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a long, fruity finish. Best after 2011."
-Wine Spectator

Good intensity and persistence on the nose, with hints of withered flowers. Well-balanced taste, with good acidity. Excellent after 4 to 10 years whatever the vintage, and up to 15/20 years in outstanding vintages.

About Ceretto:

For more than 80 years, the Ceretto family has been making wine in Piedmont's Langhe region of Italy and has set the benchmark for quality among Barolo and Barbaresco producers. The family is most well known for producing coveted single-vineyard Nebbiolo wines and introducing high-quality Arneis and Moscato. Today, the Ceretto name is synonymous with estate-grown, carefully produced wines, each expressing purity and elegance.
