About this wine
Located in Serralunga, the Cerretta vineyard plays host to some of Barlo’s greatest names, including Giacomo Conterno. Altare magnificently interprets the Serralunga cru in this modern classic, which spent 24 months in barrique, 20% new. There is exhilarating progression in this wine and a never-ending finish. The tannins are tight and there are menthol notes, anise and liquorice.
The 2013 Barolo Cerretta Vigna Bricco is the most expressive of these wines today. Smooth, polished and exceptionally refined, the 2013 exudes class. Scents of lavender, violet, plum, licorice and spice notes infuse the expressive finish. Today, the Cerretta is terrific.
