Tasting Note:

Compact but alluringly velvety, there is enormous potential here. A great Barolo that is not revealing all now, it will take time, but all the elements are there. The balance is impeccable and the flavours effortless. Dark fruit, liquorice and mineral-smacked. Long, layered, powerful but slick.A fine Serralunga vineyard produced for the first time by Altare in the 2006 vintage, Cerretta is made and aged the same way as the estate's other Barolos, 24 months in a third new oak but with an extra two years bottle age before release. Less than 5,000 bottles are made a year.
