From one of the most important crus of La Morra comes this wine that is at once brooding and structured but also effusive and elegant. This wine really needs ten years to come together!
The 2013 Barolo Cerequio is a wine of deep, underlying power, grit and determination. The wine opens to black fruit and earthy overtones with sticky tar, licorice and crushed river stone. Surprisingly, the primary fruit is not a protagonist. Instead, the wine offers a smoky and evolved personality that comes as a pleasant surprise. You can taste the youth of the wine, however, on the palate. The nervous tannins need time to integrate and soften.
Enticing scents of crushed mint, new leather, rose petal and red berry take center stage. The mint note carries over to the precise vibrant palate along with red cherry, wild raspberry and star anise. Taut refined tannins provide structure while fresh acidity lends balance. Drink 2023–2043.
