Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2008 Barolo Prapo flows with sumptuous layers of dark fruit, menthol, licorice and tar. It is a rich, generous Barolo, with more than enough fruit to stand up to the French oak. There is plenty of Serralunga character in the glass. This, too, is another fairly generous Barolo for the year, but there is more than enough richness to balance the tannins. This is a fabulous showing from Ceretto. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.  (Apr 2012)

Wine Spectator 93 points - This red exudes cherry, licorice, violet and tar aromas and flavors married to a firm, vibrant structure. Shuts down a little at midpalate, but the sweet fruit comes back with a vengeance on the long finish. Best from 2016 through 2035.óB.S. (Feb 27 2013)

For more than 80 years the Ceretto family has been making wine in Piedmontís 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.
