Nebbiolo Ceretto “Zonchera” Barolo 2008

winemaker’s notes:This is a soft, harmonious, velvety Barolo, with limited tannin content and a fine balance between alcohol and acid. It displays extraordinary drinkability after just a few months in the bottle and can be enjoyed for at least 20 years. Made with 100% Nebbiolo.
alcohol by volume: 14.5%

critical acclaim:

“An elegant and intense version, featuring licorice, tobacco, spice and earth flavors fusing with burly tannins. Offers a compact feel and a tightly wound finish, with a sweet and spicy aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2035. 5,400 cases made.”
