Tasting Notes

Delicate and refined with lovely pure fruit and great length, the bouquet opens with notes of delicate cherries and a hint of crushed raspberries and rose petals. The palate is elegant and appealing with succulent red berry fruits balanced by a vibrant freshness and refined, silky tannins. Hints of sweet herbs and a delicate balsamic note on the finish add a further layer of complexity and depth. A wine of remarkable purity and finesse, the 2013 could be enjoyed in a few years but has the capacity for decades of ageing. Drink from 2019-2030.

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
