Located in the village of Serralunga, this is an estate to watch. The firm's Cerretta Barolo has a classic fragrance of rose and violet, with earthy notes of truffle and mushroom. The palate delivers ripe, delicious black cherry, white pepper and licorice, and big but round tannins. Reflecting the forward nature of the vintage, it's enjoyable now but will improve over the next few years.
