Cerequio Barolo DOCG 2010

Cerequio Barolo DOCG 2010 play

Region: Italy / Piedmont / Barolo
Grapes: 100% Nebbiolo

The Cerequio vineyard’s soil composition and especially mild climate are qualities that make it one of the most prestigious crus of the Langhe. Rigorously selected grapes for this auspicious bottling come from an area called the “balcony of the Langhe,” situated at 1,200 feet in elevation within the La Morra commune. With tortonian calcareous Sant’Agata marl, the soils have a bluish color due to the high content of magnesium and manganese. In the cellar, high-temperature fermentation on the skins for 15 days is followed by aging for 2 years in 700-liter oak tonneaux and 15 months in bottle before release.

harvest note

A cooler growing season in 2010 resulted in elegant wines of higher acidity. South-facing vineyards produced the most favorable results.

tasting note

A deep garnet with brilliant highlights, the wine shows ample black currant, apricot, cherry, mint and spice on the nose. The aromas are confirmed on the palate in a rich, full body with healthy tannins and a lingering finish.

food pairing

Match this wine with beef, buffalo, boar and venison dishes, rich stews and aged Parmesan.
