About this wine
The Fratelli Revello 2016 Barolo Cerretta sees fruit sourced from one of the best sites in Serralunga d'Alba. You instantly feel the power, the darker fruit flavors and the concentration that are specific to this growing site. The quality of cherry fruit is a little darker here, and the plum is just a bit riper. In the mouth, this wine from Cerretta offers rich textural fiber with extra padding and volume. This wine starts off with more body fat and will require extra cellar time as a result.
The 2016 Barolo Cerretta shows all of the beguiling aromatic complexity that makes the wines of Serralunga so distinctive. Grilled herbs, melted road tar, licorice, incense, wild black cherry, menthol and pine all infuse the Cerretta with striking layers of nuance. Powerful and muscular in feel, with terrific persistence, the Cerretta has a bright future - once the tannins start to soften.
