WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

Ruby and garnet red with brilliant hues. Complex, great character with notes of mature fruits, mint, eucalyptus, gentian and fine spices. A rich palate in structure with a tight weave of fine tannins, standing out for its elegance and harmony which highlights this truly unique Barolo cru.

Ideal alongside egg with white d’Alba truffle, pan-fried lamb steak, veal braised in Barolo, Castelmagno cheese.

TASTING NOTES:

Fragrant purple flower, dark-skinned berry, chopped mint and pipe tobacco are just some of the aromas you'll find on this captivating red. The delicious palate combines structure, finesse and earthiness, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, black raspberry, licorice and truffle framed in taut, fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it youthfully focused and well balanced.

- Wine Enthusiast, 96 pts. 

The 2016 Barolo Cerequio is born in the vineyard cru that best represents the excellent winemaking efforts of the Michele Chiarlo team. The estate owns a beautiful boutique hotel and restaurant in the middle of the vineyard and fittingly uses this spot for most public functions. This is a terrific expression, showing the power and balance of the vintage with pretty accents of wild fruit, rose and dark earth that render volume and intensity to the wine's overall performance. Rating : 96+

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 96 pts. 

Loads of roasted chestnuts, glazed cherries, licorice and dried rosemary. Excellent depth and concentration here; think dried berries and forest floor. Tightly strung with raw, powerful tannins and lots of flavor. Long and chewy on the finish.

- James Suckling, 95 pts.
