The 2016 Barolo Brunate balances delicacy and freshness. Cinammon, blood orange, mint and licorice are some of the notes that grace the 2016 Barolo Brunate. Wonderfully layered and supple, the 2016 has so much to offer. Like all of these 2016s, it very nicely combines elegance with power. The Brunate is all about texture and volume; it is less open aromatically than some of the other wines in this range but very, very good nonetheless. It finishes with real breadth.
It is one of the most representative vineyards of the Commune of La Morra and has always been considered one of points of reference for the entire appellation. It is an inter-commune vineyard, the plot (good size, comprising a total of 28 hectares) is shared, from an administrative point of view, between the towns of Barolo and La Morra. As regards the soil profile, the two sides of the two Communes are not particularly different, and even the exposure (South / Southeast) is substantially homogeneous; the only variable the altitude: in fact, it ranges from 230 meters above sea level to more than 400 meters. The soils, from the Tortonian period, feature marle of S. Agata Fossils, with a good presence of sand, particularly in the highest part of the hill. The Ceretto family owns, in Brunate, just over five and a half hectares.
