Ceretto Barolo 2012

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

This is a classic Barolo - light garnet in color with Barolo's quintessential aromas of roses, tart cherries, and hints of truffles. Ceretto's Barolo DOCG is extraordinarily approachable now, but it will continue to reward the patient wine drinker as it evolves over the course of several years. Pair this wine with grilled steaks, Lyonnaise sauces, duck confit, and beef negimaki entrées.

Wine SpectatorThe new oak lends smoky, toasty nuances to the core of cherry and strawberry fruit, along with accents of vanilla. Sleek and focused, with dusty tannins lining the extended finish. Shows finesse and potential, but needs time. Best from 2022 through 2039.

Wine AdvocateCeretto presents a fine expression of Barolo (with fruit sourced from various sites) in the 2012 Barolo. The wine is redolent of pressed flowers, cassis, dried raspberry and grilled herb. Lighter, more vertical aromas of cola, smoke, campfire ash, dried ginger and toasted anise seed lift gently from the back. The mouthfeel boasts savory, ripe fruit and offers a distant note of succulent sweetness.

Wine EnthusiastThis luminous red offers aromas of wild red berry, dark spice, menthol and a whiff of espresso. The ripe, rather straightforward palate offers raspberry, tart cherry, licorice, toast, mocha and tobacco alongside polished tannins. Drink 2017-2022.
