    The cherry core is encased in leather, iron and stone flavors, but also tight, dense tannins, lending a sinewy character. All the components are in the right proportions and the finish is long. Best from 2022 to 2043.

    Usually one of the heartiest and substantial wines in the Ceretto lineup, the 2013 Barolo Prapó delivers a more understated and graceful performance in this vintage. The bouquet reveals fine aromas of wild berry and blueberry with spice, licorice, white truffle, tar and cured tobacco. Serralunga d'Alba shows dark fruit flavors and plenty of aromatic intensity for sure. But this vintage feels buoyant and bright instead with fine texture and long persistence. Pretty floral aromas of rose and summer lavender appear on the close.

    What fascinating aromas of perfume and flowers with dried-citrus undertones. Strawberries, too. Full body, chewy tannins and a vivid finish. Ethereal in many ways.
