Tasting Notes

The 2010 Villero demonstrates remarkable approachability. Somewhat softer and riper than the other two Crus but still with the Barolo trademark structure of tannins and acidity, it is perhaps the concentration of sweet cherry fruit and floral notes here that gives it this accessibility. A classic Barolo all round with roses, tar and violets all featuring heavily on the palate. Enjoyable over the next few years after decanting and with food but also able to develop for a decade or two, much in line with the Cannubi.

Reviews & Scores

Riper and fruitier than their Cannubi. Still has the signature floral fragrance, but there is even more on the palate ? perfume, chocolate, violets, and tar ? the whole nine yards of Barolo. Fantastic. Score: 19/20 Richard Hemming (JancisRobinson.com)

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

TASTING NOTES

“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
