Cerequio Barolo DOCG 2015 play

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

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 is followed by aging in 700-liter oak tonneaux and then in bottle before release.

harvest note

The 2015 vintage had ideal climatic conditions, which allowed the grapes to mature perfectly. The rain in August, followed by a sunny September with good thermal excursion between day and night temperatures, favoured a slow ripening of the Nebbiolo grapes in Barolo, which resulted in a harvest during a normal time period (October 2-5). The Barolo labels from this vintage have remarkable structure and are distinguished by a marked richness and aromatic elegance with notes of sweet fruit and spice. The palate is silky, with tannins that linger. It is a great vintage that can be enjoyed young, but is also has ageing potential.

tasting note

The color is ruby red with garnet hints. Great character and complex notes of mature fruit, mint, eucaluptus and fine spices on the nose. The palate is rich in structure with a weave of fine tannins, standing out for its elegance and harmony, which highlights this truly unique Barolo cru.

food pairing

Great pairings for this wine are red meat dishes, game and ripe, hard cheeses.
