TASTING NOTES

"The 2008 Barolo Cerretta is all about textural depth and finesse. Layers of fruit caress the palate in this mid-weight, easygoing Barolo. Crushed flowers, tobacco and dried cherries linger on the pointed finish. This is a relatively soft, open, accessible Barolo for the year. In 2008 Cerretta was hit by hail, and that contributes to the wine's medium-bodied personality. Still, this is a very pretty wine for the year." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"A balanced and fruity red with plum, cocoa and light nut character. Full body, soft tannins and a fruity finish. Delicious now. Why wait?" JamesSuckling.com

"This red is open despite the firm structure, with cherry, licorice and tar notes appearing on the latticed frame. Finishes on the earthy side, showing dense, dusty tannins. Best from 2016 through 2035. 100 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"Just mid ruby with broad orange-tinged rim. Hints of chinotto [carbonated soft drink produced from the juice of the fruit of the myrtle-leaved orange tree] and dried cherry, but otherwise not expressing much. Very elegant palate weight, rashly followed by muscular tannin. Fresh, and needs to settle. Impressive." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
