Ceretto Barolo 2013


SKU 747



Winemaker Notes :

This is a classic Barolo - light garnet in color with Barolo's quintessential aromas of roses, tart cherries, and hints of truffles. Ceretto's Barolo DOCG is extraordinarily approachable now, but it will continue to reward the patient wine drinker as it evolves over the course of several years.

Wine SpectatorTaut and gritty, with austere and dense tannins locking down the cherry, menthol and tobacco flavors. Offers a glimpse of sweet cherry, but only time will yield the hidden facets. Offers a long, licorice-tinged finish. Best from 2023 through 2040.

Wine AdvocateThis is a beautiful wine that showcases the classic characteristics of the harvest. The 2013 Barolo opens to sassy spice and cinnamon with dark fruit and balsam herb. This is a firmly structured wine with a firm tannic backbone that serves to support and frame the dark and exuberant fruit found at its inner core.

Wine EnthusiastRose, violet, crushed mint and red-berry scents mingle together in the glass. On the tight palate, bright acidity and taut fine-grained tannins frame cherry, strawberry, star anise and dried herb. It’s a great introduction to this classic vintage.
