About

94

"A rich and dense red with dried cherry, chocolate and hazelnut aromas and flavours. Full body, round and velvety tannins and a flavorfull finish. Wonderful future here"

94 Falstaff Magazine

92 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Cerequio is arguably Michele Chairlo's most important vineyard cru and the prominent Italian vintner has embraced its subtleties and nuances better than most. The 2012 Barolo Cerequio is interesting because although the aromatic intensity is muted compared to other more celebrated vintages, the wine's inner complexity is intact. The bouquet is redolent of wild berry, tar, smoke, licorice and spice. The overall effect is ethereal and pure."

90 Wine Spectator

"Aromas of rose, cherry and licorice signal this fluid, vibrant red. An elegant version that builds to a long, mineral-tinged finish, with refined tannins for support. Best from 2018 through 2032. 1,250 cases made. "

90 Wine Enthusiast

" A lovely bouquet of woodland berry, rose, violet and baking spice takes center stage. The palate offers tart cherry, cranberry, anise and chopped herb alongside silky, polished tannins that make this already approachable."

Product Description:

a rich palate in structure with a tight weave of fine tannins, standing out for its elegance and harmony which highlights this truly unique Barolo cru. “For the Nebbiolo grapes of Barolo, it was a year characterised by a hot, dry summer with rainfall at the end of August, rebalancing the maturation of the harvest which was slightly early. The wine has excellent structure with an already remarkable softness and elegance in its juvenile stage. A vintage with good longevity.” Stefano Chiarlo
