Ceretto Barolo Bricco Rocche 2013
The winemaking team at Ceretto should be proud of these results. The 2013 Barolo Bricco Rocche is a complete and centered wine with depth, harmony and enticing complexity. You immediately notice the tension and energy in this wine. It is buzzing with youthful character but it also has the solid tannic structure and the balanced acidity to carry it forward over the years. The Castiglione Falletto township, where the Bricco Rocche vineyard is located, has performed beautifully across the board in this classic vintage.
A spicy expression introduces this intense, tight red, with cherry and currant fruit augmented by white pepper, mineral, tobacco and tar flavors. Complex and long, with a tension that will take years to unwind. Terrific length. Best from 2023 through 2045.
