Ceretto Barbaresco 2019

Availability: In stock (4)

Barbaresco gained its DOCG status a mere 3 months after Barolo, Brunello di Montalcino, and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. This elevation of Barbaresco put it on an even playing field with Barolo, Piedmont’s other Nebbiolo- based wine.

Nebbiolo is a high acid, high tannin grape that needs deft winemaking to tame its power. Like Pinot Noir the grape translates its terroir easily. Each slope (sori) and hilltop (bricco) has a distinctive personality that translates into the wine. Upon release Barbaresco is considered slightly softer and more elegant than Barolo. Look for aromas of fennel, truffles, violet, and roses along with bright cherry fruit. Barbaresco must be aged at least 2 years with 9 month minimum in oak.
