Garnet in color with ruby red highlights, the wine has an expressive nose with aromas of red cherries, red plums, dried rose petals, sweet spices, and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is vibrant and harmonious with refreshing acidity balanced by firm, ripe tannins. Red fruits mingle with lightly perfumed floral flavors leading to a long, impressive finish. Food Pairing: Pair this wine with pan-seared steaks, duxelles, Beef Wellington, and grilled meats such as lamb, pork or beef.

Lifted aromas of crushed mint, menthol, underbrush and crushed berry are front and center on this impressive wine. It's still young but already shows impeccable pedigree, delivering raspberry compote, juicy Marasca cherry, licorice and clove while assertive but refined tannins and fresh acidity provide balance and an age-worthy structure. Drink 2025-2038.

The cherry core is encased in leather, iron and stone flavors, but also tight, dense tannins, lending a sinewy character. All the components are in the right proportions and the finish is long. Best from 2022 through 2043. 330 cases made.

Usually one of the heartiest and substantial wines in the Ceretto lineup, the 2013 Barolo Prapó delivers a more understated and graceful performance in this vintage. The bouquet reveals fine aromas of wild berry and blueberry with spice, licorice, white truffle, tar and cured tobacco. Serralunga d'Alba shows dark fruit flavors and plenty of aromatic intensity for sure. But this vintage feels buoyant and bright instead with fine texture and long persistence. Pretty floral aromas of rose and summer lavender appear on the close.
