Why We're Buying
Year after year, Ceretto Barbaresco Bernardot becomes more expressive and enticing. It's a testament to the winemaking tradition of the Ceretto family, which founded Ceretto Casa Vinicola in the 1930s.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is a beautiful creation from a vintage that threw quite a few challenges at vintners elsewhere in Italy and here in Piedmont. The Ceretto 2017 Barbaresco Bernadot plays up its elegance and its graceful personality. With fruit from an organic and biodynamic 4.8-hectare site in Treiso, planted high at 400 meters above sea, this pretty Barbaresco reveals very specific aromas of wild berry, light spice, licorice and iron rust. These aromas are essential components of the classic Nebbiolo playlist, as is the lightweight, silky texture of this wine. The Bernadot is natural and effortless (aged in mostly neutral oak).
