Barolo Prapo' Bricco Rocche Ceretto 2004
Wine Advocate Review Rated 91 The 2004 Barolo Prapo, from a vineyard in Serralunga, is richer and weightier than the Brunate. This fresh, structured wine is loaded with sweet dark plums and prunes in liqueur, vanilla and sweet toasted oak. It offers outstanding length and finessed tannins that frame its core of dark fruit. It too is made in an international style. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022. Wine Tasting Notes The color is a bright, deep red garnet and the nose exhibits an explosion of fruity scents (blackberry and small berry fruits) as well as notes of tobacco, vanilla and coffee which make it very complex and substantial. The tasting offers us a wine decidedly full and rich with evolved, smooth and persistent tannins. It has a long and harmonic finish without being sharp-cornered, as is common in young Barolos from Serralunga.
Editorial Reviews for Barolo Prapo' Bricco Rocche Ceretto
The aromatics here are lean and sleek with nuanced floral and tar notes accented by a touch of raw oakiness though the sappy rosehip and rhubarb notes of fruit do add tot he mix. This has a lovely inner core of sweetness to the fruit but it is a bit lactic and vanilla toned. Quite polished and well balanced with excellent acidity and ripe tannins supporting the relatively long finish with it's clear tones of mint, mineral and slightly medicinal flavors. 92pts
