“The Ceretto Barolo Bricco Rocche comes from a small and impressive plot of just over one hectare, located 370 meters high in the town of Castiglione Falletto, in the province of Cuneo. It is obtained entirely by only Nebbiolo grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts. Following the malolactic fermentation, the wine is left to age in oak barrels for 12 months and then moved in large barrels. Barolo Bricco Rocche is a brilliant ruby red color with garnet. The nose stand out of violet, cherry jam and potpourri of flowers. The palate is intense, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Delightful to accompany a risotto with white truffle or second game.”

“I had it with fish, but I didn't like the fish, and therefore the wine didn't taste right. A special red wine for someone just as special .
Red colour followed by reddish brown. Especially noticeable smoky aromas in this Ceretto. I liked the taste of blackberries in this Ceretto Barolo Bricco Rocche.”
“It is better not to pair this with food, as otherwise its fabulous taste might not be appreciated adequately. All of my friends were delighted about this wine.
Amazing cherry colour. It has a strong caramel smell. Stays a quite a few time in the mouth.”
