"Along with Brunate, Prapò was the first Barolo parcel purchased by Bruno and Marcello Ceretto in the late 1960s. Taking time to unfold, the 2016 Prapò has a strikingly poignant nose revealing sous-bois, freshly turned soil, alpine herbs and wild dark forest berries. A stony element chimes in on the palate, and while this is undoubtedly sturdy in structure it remains agile with finely sculpted tannins. As with all of Ceretto’s cru bottlings, this sees six months in small used barrels of French oak before finishing ageing in larger Austrian oak casks. Drinking Window 2024 - 2040."
