CERETTO BRICCO ROCCHE
2010 CERETTO BAROLO
"The 2010 Barolo plays all the right cards. As far as base Barolo goes, this is a charming wine. It's one of the best made in the 2010 vintage with soft lines, firm structure and a bursting personality. The bouquet is brimming with Nebbiolo-driven aromas of anise seed, cola, licorice and white almond skin. Fruit tones are delicate and ethereal with cassis and dried raspberry at the front. In the mouth, the wine is graceful and silky. Drink: 2016-2026." Monica Larner Wine Advocate 93 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.
