Tasting Notes

This Barolo shows very pure and vibrant cherries on the nose with light, perfumed nuances that create an ethereal mood. The palate is delivered as a set of succulent and detailed tannins, soaked in red cherries and leading to a long, juicy and impressively concentrated finish. Best to hold for three to five years.

Score: 95James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, January 2019

The 2015 Barolo Prapò is a gorgeous expression of this vineyard site in Serralunga d'Alba, with an incredible sense of textural fiber that is so fine and tightly knit. The mouthfeel is extremely polished and silky. Like other Barolos from Ceretto, it almost seems a shame to distract attention from this craftsmanship with flavors from a heavy meal, and so it might be better to cellar it for a decade and then celebrate it with fine cheeses or pâté. Some 7,000 bottles were produced.

Score: 95+Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, June 2019

The 2015 Barolo Prapò is another stellar wine in this range. Iron, smoke, blood orange and a host of mineral/feral notes give the Prapò striking complexity to play off the wine's intense, muscular tannins. Deceptively medium in body, the Prapò packs a serious punch. More than anything else, the Prapò has that distinctive Serralunga interplay of aromatic intensity, fruit depth and structural underpinning that make the best wines from the village so compelling.
