Barolo Cerretta

2014

Sourced from several parcels, all located in the village of Serralunga d'Alba at 300-400 meters above sea level with south-east and west exposures. The soils are mainly calcareous and tuffaceous ground; vines are planted at a density of 4,000 plants per hectare and trained with the guyot growing system. The fruit is harvested by hand in the second half of October; fermentation lasts for 15-20 days at 25-30 °C, with frequent racking.

"A linear, racy style, whose complex cherry, plum, underbrush, tar and mineral flavors are fused to its dense tannins. Though compact and monolithic today, everything is in the correct proportions. Best from 2023 through 2040. 305 cases made, 70 cases imported."
