Tasting Note:

Layered and deep without being heavy. Wonderful mouth-coating flavours that mix fruit sweetness and savoury earth characteristics. Spice, smoke and iron married to dark small berry flavours. Profound, sturdy but generous and juicy. Warming and satisfying. 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.
