Winemaker's Notes:

This is a soft, smooth, round Barolo. With its moderate tannins, its alcohol and acidity are generally well balanced. Extraordinarily easy to drink just a few months after bottling, in outstanding vintages it can also be cellared for considerably longer than 10 years. Pair with red meat dishes and richly prepared game.

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.
