ceretto, barolo, bricco rocche 2015
Instantly attractive and ethereal nose with rich perfume and ripe red cherries and plums, as well as wild flowers and herbs. So beautiful and complex. The palate has such concentration and purity from start to finish. There’s an incredibly deep vein of ripe cherries here, framed in perfectly polished and layered tannins. Great Barolo. Try from 2023
The 2015 Barolo Bricco Rocche is the most delicate and finessed of the four Ceretto 2015 Barolos. All of the signatures that make this Castiglione Falletto site so compelling come through effortlessly. Bright, medium in body and finely sculpted, the 2015 speaks to precision above all else. Like all of these 2015, the Bricco Rocche is embryonic. I can’t wait to taste it in another few years. Today, the 2015 comes across as tightly wound and classically austere, but in the best sense of those terms. In other words, it is a wine for the cellar.
