TASTING NOTES

"The estate's 2004 Barolo Bricco Rocche reveals an expansive, generous personality. Macerated cherries, spices, vanilla, tar and smoke develop as this pretty, sumptuous wine opens in the glass. Silky tannins and a resonating note of sweetness from the oak carry through to the long finish. The Bricco Rocche still sees 100% new oak but Ceretto is contemplating a shorter aging regime. The 2005, which had just been taken out of oak at the time of my visit, was fresher than the 2004 and seemed to benefit from less time in barrel. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024."

"Medium, warm brick red. Sweet, almost exotic and leathery red cherries. Oak spice evident on the palate but not dominant and is well balanced by the rich red fruit flavours. Already quite rounded even though tannins are dense and firm. Chewy but fresh length." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
