The Ceretto 2016 Barbaresco is a softly layered wine with focus and balance. The wine is contoured and delicate with dried cherry and cassis aromas followed by licorice, spice and campfire ash. Ceretto has done a terrific job with this base Barbaresco (made with blended fruit from various vineyard sites). You can drink this wine straight out of the gate. Production is 18,000 bottles strong.
From the Winemakers' Website: This classic Barbaresco is a blend of our finest vineyards, a small part of Asili, the part with younger vineyards, & the lowest part of Bernadot in Treiso. With the union of these two different expressions, the wine achieves a better balance than vinifying the two wines as separate parcels. While on the one side there is the explosive finesse of Asili & on the other, the fullness of the Treiso cru, in the glass we find the right balance; the result is a delicious & traditional wine, a perfect example of an area that moves between structure & elegance.
