2007 CERETTO BAROLO ZONCHERA
"This red displays cherry, plum and leather notes, turning lean and firm by the finish, with ripe, dense tannins holding court. Fresh and linear in profile. Best from 2014 through 2026." Wine Spectator 90 points
|For more than 80 years the Ceretto family has been making wine in Piedmont’s Langhe.
The family is most well known for producing coveted single-vineyard estate grown
Nebbiolo wines and high-quality Arneis and Moscato. Their wine production covers seven separate estates, while an eighth (I Vignaiolo di Santo Stefano) is co-owned along with two other growers. The Cerettos were the first producers in Piedmont to use stainless steel for
fermenting red wine and adopted other modern techniques, including temperature control
for fermentation, reduced maceration times and new oak aging. When Ceretto produced its first Arneis, only 74 acres of this grape were planted in the region. Today there are more than 1,200 acres planted to Arneis. The Ceretto Arneis is considered the benchmark and
one in every five bottles of Arneis produced in Piedmont bears the Blange label.
