100% nebbiolo from the iconic 2016 vintage. A classic Barbaresco.
“Ceretto's 2016 Barbaresco is bright and very nicely focused, with tremendous energy and a sense of translucent vibrancy that is simply compelling. Sweet red berry and floral notes are finely sketched in this gorgeous positively striking Barbaresco from Ceretto. I tasted the 2016 from cask prior to bottling. The straight Barbaresco is a blend of 65% Bernardot and 35% Asili from younger vines and lower, less well-exposed parcels. More importantly, though, the straight Barbaresco is a terrific introduction to the vintage at Ceretto.” 91-93 Points, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com
“The Ceretto 2016 Barbaresco is a softly layered wine with focus and balance. The wine is contoured and delicate with dried cherry and cassis aromas followed by licorice, spice and campfire ash. Ceretto has done a terrific job with this base Barbaresco (made with blended fruit from various vineyard sites). You can drink this wine straight out of the gate.” 92+ points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate.
