Cellar for up to 20 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

The Cerettos have played a pivotal role in the modern history of Barolo ever since Riccardo Ceretto founded the family estate in the 1930s. Riccardo’s sons, Bruno and Marcello, helped pioneer the trend for estate-bottled single vineyard wines which is one of the defining features of top quality Barolo today. The third generation is now in charge of the property, taking great care of the family’s 160 hectares of vines so they can be handed on the next generation.

This is the family’s classic Barolo which is made from top quality fruit from the legendary communes of La Morra, Barolo and Serralunga d’Alba. The vines are farmed organically to maximize quality and the fruit is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. After 12 months in tonneaux and another 12 months ageing in wooden barrels the wine is finally bottled.

The long ageing process helps craft an elegant, well-balanced Barolo with ample red cherry, redcurrant, and plum notes mingling with hints of dried flowers, spice, and leather. The bold flavour profile, full body and robust tannins make this a great wine to stash away in the cellar, although it can also be savoured now with a fine sirloin steak, barbecued ribs, or game meats.
