Tasting Notes

The 2010 retains its personality with intense aromas of sweet cherry and wild strawberries mingled with refined spicy notes. Succulent and rich on the palate, it has a core of ripe red fruits with darker blackberry characters in the background which balance the lovely bright acidity and smooth, integrated tannins. Notes of sweet herbs and some subtle toasty oak on the finish add complexity. The over-all impression is of a beautifully integrated and captivating wine with magnificent depth. While very appealing now, it will mature well for twenty years or more.

Reviews & Scores

Aromas of freshly sliced strawberries and wild flowers. Minty. Full body, with wonderfully integrated tannins and a clean, fresh finish. Very drinkable already, but better in 2016.
Score: 95 Points

TASTING NOTES

“A darker, more structured Barolo than his sibling, Prapo’ is an incredibly pure expression of the terroir of Serralunga. Precise notes of red and black berries, forest floor and dark spices are framed by tight woven tannins and lively freshness. An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Wines

“Taut, elegant, ethereal expression of Nebbiolo. A purebred Barolo that entices with notes of red fruits, meadow flowers and just hints of Italian leather and spices. Already approachable, Cerretta will be a sure joy to revisit in five to ten years.” Armit Wines
