Cerretta has warm south-west exposure, at (350-370 meters (1,150-1,225 feet) above sea level. The Cerretta and Prapò vineyards are are right next to each other, but the difference between the two wines is striking; Cerretta is more structured, shows the Serralunga dark chocolate character even more strongly, with a strong sandalwood/tobacco note; it's aged in untoasted 700 liter barrels, to allow the wine to develop. Ages superbly.

Wine EnthusiastUnderbrush, rose, new leather, crushed mint and balsamic aromas take center stage on this fragrant, structured red. The firm elegantly structured palate shows succulent raspberry, Marasca cherry and licorice alongside a backbone of fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity. It has great energy and wonderfully juicy fruit-uncommon for the cool wet vintage. Drink 2022-2030.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Barolo Cerretta is unfortunately tainted by aromas that could be related to Brettanomyces. The bouquet is savory and meaty with smoked bacon fat and aged bresaola. It's too strong for my tastes, and I can't recommend this wine. Only 6,500 bottles were made.
