Tasting Note:

So different to the other Altare wines, this is fullsome velvety and all about power and breadth of flavour. Dense, encompassing flavours of liquorice, dark fruit and earth. Big bold smooth and complex. 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 5000 bottles are made a year.
