Tasting Notes

A wine which goes from strength to strength each vintage, the 2012 is very refreshing with an expressive and elegant bouquet of acacia flowers, orange blossom, green apples and white peaches. The palate is bursting with zesty citrus flavours with nuances of crisp apples, sweet apricots and soft stone fruits. A very attractive and fragrant wine, it will be delicious from release.

Reviews & Scores

In a trim, linear style, this white exhibits clean grapefruit, pear and apple notes, with a moderately long finish.
87 Points, Wine Spectator

(bottled in March): Bright, pale yellow. Aromas of apple and flowers complicated by a musky leesy note (this wine spent just one month on its lees). Sappy, concentrated apple and honeysuckle flavors show noteworthy extract. Finishes with a refreshing bitter edge and lovely length and grip. A very good vintage for this wine. In comparison, noted Bruna Giacosa, the 2011 was less aromatic.

“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
