Ceretto Bricco Rocche Barolo Brunate 2005

SKU 1552


Brunate 2005 fully expresses the characteristics of this great cru: harmony and elegance. The nose is intense and delicate, with floral notes and red fruit with fresh, almost minty, hints of balsamic. In the mouth, the first impact is full and fresh, followed by lively tannins, tight and silky. Though it needs a bit of aging, this is one of those Barolo wines that is immediately appreciated and drinkable.

Wine EnthusiastThanks to its dense clay soils, the Brunate cru delivers wines with high color saturation and aromatic caliber. This Barolo offers layers of black fruit, plum, spice, tobacco, cola and dark chocolate. The wine is firm and finely textured with power, dimension and personality on the long finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Barolo Brunate offers lovely richness in its sweet, perfumed red fruits, leather, spices and French oak. This is an especially graceful Brunate from Ceretto that dances on the palate, showing gorgeous balance and poise. The finish is long, sweet and harmonious, with the fruit offering lovely density to balance the tannins. In short, this is a beautiful effort from Ceretto. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.

Wine SpectatorShows ripe fruit, dried mushroom and hints of black licorice on a full body, offering round tannins and a velvety-textured finish, with lots of vanilla. A little subdued now. Needs to open. Best after 2012. 1,500 cases made.
