Ceretto Bricco Rocche Barolo Bricco Rocche 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

For more than 80 years the Ceretto family has been making wine in Piedmont's Langhe. The family is most well known for producing coveted single-vineyard estate grown Nebbiolo wines and high quality Arneis and Moscato. Their wine production covers seven separate estates, while an eighth (I Vignaiolo di Santo Stefano) is co-owned along with two other growers. The Cerettos were the first producers in Piedmont to use stainless steel for fermenting red wine and adopted other modern techniques, including temperature control for fermentation, reduced maceration times and new oak aging. When Ceretto produced its first Arneis, only 74 acres of this grape were planted in the region. Today there are more than 1,200 acres planted to Arneis. The Ceretto Arneis is considered the benchmark and one in every five bottles of Arneis produced in Piedmont bears the Blange label.

Reticent on the nose with slow to emerge notes of earth, sweet anise, sweet pharmaceutical notes and some burnt orange peel. In the mouth this is round with soft tannins well buffered by a nice core of ripe fruit. There is nice weight here and good balance but it's not revealing much detail and finishes fairly quickly. 90pts
