Rich, with oak spice and chocolate accents shading the cherry, plum and tobacco flavors. Tightly wound, displaying full tannins on the finish. Well-balanced, this needs time to absorb the tannins.

The 2008 Barolo Bricco Rocche is one of the very finest wines I have tasted from Ceretto in a long time. Layers of fruit flow effortlessly from this classy, elegant Barolo. All of the elements are in place in this superb, polished effort. Sweet dark cherries, roses, spices and licorice are woven into the textured, generous finish. I can only hope the 2008 Bricco Rocche is a sign of what we can expect from Ceretto in the coming years.
