The 2012 Barolo Cerretta is a bit richer and deeper than the Serra. Dark red cherry, plum, savory herbs and licorice give the wine its aromatic signatures. This, too, is a relatively mid-weight style, although there is a good underpinning of tannic grip. Accordingly, the 2012 is best enjoyed sooner rather than later.
With Brunello in Tuscany, Barolo is undoubtedly Italy's finest wine producing region. Located in Piedmont in the north west of Iataly Barolo is comprised of 5 major communes - Barolo, Monteforte d'Alba, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d'Alba - though the latter three tend to represent the main styles of the region. The wines are compelling and polished - an exemplary expression of the Nebbiolo grape. DOCG law requires a minimum ageing of 2 years in cask or barrel yet can be longer depending on the producer. Barolos are generally released four or more years after the vintage.
