Ceretto Barbaresco DOCG Asij Nebbiolo

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Nebbiolo is like a ballsy pinot noir, and generally has the guts to last. This offering from Ceretto is drinking quite nicely now, and shows some fleshy dark cherries and earthy spices on the nose, along with dried roses. The palate is medium-bodied with some juciness to the cherry flavours, wrapped up on decent acidity, relatively smooth tannins, and a long sour cherry-like finish. Excellent with osso buco.

Winemaker's Notes

The Asij expresses a nice intensity and persistence on the nose, with hints of withered flowers. It demonstrates a well-balanced taste and good acidity in the mouth. This Barbaresco is excellent after 4 to 10 years, regardless of vintage, and up to 15/20 years in outstanding vintages.

Barbaresco Asij, like the Barolo Zonchera, has an importal role in preserving and guaranteeing the excellence of the single-vineyard, Bricco Rocche Barolo and Bricco Asili Barbaresco wines. In lesser vintages (statistically 2 out of 10), wines produced at the two wineries in Castiglione Falleto and Barbaresco and deemed unsuitable to carry the indication of the cru are blended with these two base wines.
