Ceretto Barbaresco 2019
|Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco
The Ceretto 2019 Barbaresco is an organic wine that paints a clear picture of a beautiful vintage. Tart cherry, white licorice and dusty earth lift from the bouquet and give this wine a sharp sense of focus and intensity. Ceretto has released a superb set of Barbarescos this year, starting with this classic expression.
A racy red, with pure cherry and strawberry fruit mingling with hay and late summer meadow aromas. The tight structure keeps this focused while it builds to a long, detailed aftertaste. Shows lovely harmony and brightness. Best from 2025 through 2042. 840 cases imported.
This has aromas of oak and toasted nut that come to the forefront while berry and spice stay in the background. Tightly wound and primary, the palate offers raspberry jam, vanilla and licorice alongside close-grained tannins that grip the close. Fresh acidity keeps it bright. 2027-2034.
The 2019 Barbaresco is bright and nicely focused. Crushed red berry fruit, cedar, tobacco and spice are lifted. Veins of supporting tannin and acid give this mid-weight, nervy Barbaresco lovely energy. The 2019 is elegant and also quite promising.
