Ceretto 1997 Brunate (Barolo)

This wine from Ceretto shows the hallmarks of the 1997 vintage in Piedmont: ultraripe fruit and ample alcohol. Starts off with leathery, cedary aromas that quickly recede beneath huge, mouth-filling flavors of brandied fruitcake, candied fruit and dried spices. Firm tannins mark this as age worthy, but the nearly overblown quality of the fruit makes it approachable now.
