ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2007 Barolo Brunate is a gorgeous, refined wine. An expressive, open bouquet melds into dark, sensual fruit. The Brunate possesses gorgeous delineation, wonderful inner perfume and polished tannins that frame the majestic finish. In this vintage the French oak is also exceptionally well-balanced. The freshness, vibrancy and overall sense of harmony elevate the Brunate into the top tier of 2007 Baroli. This beautiful, aristocratic Barolo is the finest young wine I have tasted from Ceretto in a long time. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2032.

Wine Enthusiast

Blockbuster intensity is delivered here in part thanks to the dense soils and concentrated style associated with the Brunate cru, and in part due to the warmth and power of the 2007 vintage. Lingering tones of vanilla, sweet spice, red cherry and soft chocolate fuel a long, luscious finish.

Pure fruit on then nose, with dried strawberries and chocolate and white truffles. Full and insanely fruity, with juicy fruit and a balance of ripe tannins. Such wonderful here. Racy and powerful. Best after 2013.
