Giacomo Conterno Cerretta Barolo 2018  - First Bottle

Reviews

95-97 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Tasted from barrel, the Giacomo Conterno 2018 Barolo Cerretta is shaping up to be a beauty. What stands out most at this very young stage is the quality and the elegant tightness of the tannins. Cerretta fruit from Serralunga d'Alba makes for powerful, structured and concentrated Nebbiolo that is delivered with naked clarity and outstanding purity. These qualities are clearly linked to the vineyard site and less to the conservative efforts executed at the winery. You taste the crunch or the nervous quality of the grape skins and pulp with dark and purple berry nuances and rusty or mineral overtones that hint at the more significant presence of clay in these soils.

About the Producer

The estate was founded by Giovanni Conterno in 1908. In the early '60s, Giacomo decided to pass the winery to his sons, Giovanni and Aldo, passing on his credo: "Only premium quality can bring prestige to the Langhe." Giovanni and Aldo worked together until 1969, when Aldo branched off and founded his own estate, the Poderi Aldo Conterno. Giovanni brought his son, Roberto, to work with him in 1988, and Roberto took control of the estate upon his father's passing in 2004.
