Tasting Notes

Ceretto's entry-level 2016 Barbaresco has all of the energy and vibrancy it showed as a barrel sample. The 2016 is not big or obvious, instead it offers superb persistence and striking balance. Sweet red cherry, mint, pine, licorice and candied orange peel all grace this exquisite entry-level Barbaresco from Ceretto. The straight Barbaresco is a blend of approximately 65% Bernardot and 35% Asili from younger vines and lower, less well-exposed parcels. Drink 2021-2031.

Ceretto's 2016 Barbaresco is bright and very nicely focused, with tremendous energy and a sense of translucent vibrancy that is simply compelling. Sweet red berry and floral notes are finely sketched in this gorgeous positively striking Barbaresco from Ceretto. I tasted the 2016 from cask prior to bottling. The straight Barbaresco is a blend of 65% Bernardot and 35% Asili from younger vines and lower, less well-exposed parcels. More importantly, though, the straight Barbaresco is a terrific introduction to the vintage at Ceretto.

The Ceretto 2016 Barbaresco is a softly layered wine with focus and balance. The wine is contoured and delicate with dried cherry and cassis aromas followed by licorice, spice and campfire ash. Ceretto has done a terrific job with this base Barbaresco (made with blended fruit from various vineyard sites). You can drink this wine straight out of the gate. Production is 18,000 bottles strong. 2020 - 2035
