Tasting Note:

Darker and spicier than Altare’s other Barolos, wild brambly fruit mixed with notes of blood orange, liquorice spice and undergrowth. Complex bold and powerful with a velvet gloss to the binding structure, this is blockbuster Barolo. 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.
