Reviews & Scores

Four parcels of fruit, crushed and cold-soaked 3-5 days, fermented separately in 'Fat Boy' fermenters with daily pumpovers, 5-10 days post-ferment maceration, matured in French hogsheads (23% new) for 18 months. Against the odds (low yield, warm vintage), this is a near-perfect, elegant DOWIE DOOLE cabernet, the answer to the paradox the estate Tintookie Vineyard in Blewitt Springs. The balance of the fruit, oak and tannin is perfect, as is the contrast of cassis and black olive.
96 Points, James Halliday

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
