Ceretto is a third -generation family wine enterprise that was founded more than 70 years ago in the Langhe region of Piedmonte, Italy. It has built up its impressive international reputation and was a pioneer in introducing the concept of cru- wines made from specific vineyards chosen for their enduring excellence.Founded by Riccardo Ceretto in the 1930s, the domaine’s turning-point came in the sixties, when control was handed to the second generation, brothers Bruno and Marcello. Inspired by a trip to Burgundy, the brothers focused on the concept of terroir, a revolutionary approach for the region, and set about identifying the finest crus of Barolo and Barbaresco.In the vineyard Alessandro Ceretto has been shifting to organic and biodynamic practices, paying much more attention to the soil and establishing a mother vineyard using selection massale propagating only the best vines.

The 2015 Barolo Prapò is a beautiful expression of this Cru vineyard in Serralunga d'Alba, with aromas of eucalyptus, rose, wild herbs, dark spice, espresso and tar. In the mouth it's textural, fine and tightly knit with sour cherry, cranberry, orange rind, matcha tea and ground clove. Firmly structured with silky tannins and bright acidity. Another stunning release.

Often referred to as the king of red grapes, Nebbiolo is responsible for some of the greatest wines in the world. The regions of Barbaresco and Barolo, in Piedmont, Italy, create the most revered expressions of the variety and have set the benchmarks for the world over. Nebbiolo is quite light in colour, dry and delicate but packs a punch in aroma and flavour with notes of rose, tar, cherry, red berries, blood orange, licorice, leather, terracotta and earthy herbals. These wines have high acidity and high tannins, making them extremely age worthy that deepen in complexity over decades. Simply stunning wines!
