Winemaker Notes

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."

"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."

Ceretto, Italy
Ceretto Winery Image

The Langhe hills of Piedmont constitute that area of northern Italy where the wide and flat Pò river valley suddenly disappears and gives way on all sides to hulking and precipitous slopes. The Langhe hills are more than hills. They are ancient and rugged earth. Their narrow peaks are topped by castles, and they are thick to the horizon with grapevines. The Langhe hills are home to a small group of farmers and winemakers who, together, have succeeded in creating some of the planet’s finest expressions of place.

The Ceretto family is among that fortunate group. For three generations members of the Ceretto family have transformed the fruit of the Langhe’s vineyards into wines that speak of the regions identity. The famed Italian gastronome and intellectual Luigi Veronelli wrote, "The land, the land, the land, the land, always, the land." This philosophy is central to the Ceretto family. Reverence for this land has passed from Riccardo, who blended fruit from the region’s best vineyards, to Bruno and Marcello, who purchased Langhe vineyards and began bottling single crus, and finally to Alessandro, who is taking the winery into the 21st century by using natural methods to foster vines that are stronger, healthier, and more in balance with their environment. The Ceretto family has always been committed to producing the most expressive and authentic wines their land can yield.
