Barolo Riserva ‘Cerretta Vigna Bricco’, Altare

Located in Serralunga, the Cerretta vineyard plays host to some of Barlo’s greatest names, including Giacomo Conterno. Altare’s vines enjoy southern exposure and are grown mostly in clay. Yields average about 5 tons per hectare. Maceration is relatively short at 4 to 5 days, but rotary fermenters bring depth and structure. The Cerretta is aged for two years in French barriques before resting in bottle prior to release. Just 500 cases are made each year.
