Ceretto Bricco Rocche Barolo Prapo 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

At decanting: dark, cocoa, coffee bean, touch of mint and mineral Intense herbal notes, greet the nose, which opens to reveal a spicy, bright, and notably minerally base supporting, lovely, intense, wild strawberry fruit. In the mouth this is packed with fruit, and very well balanced with fine acid and tannin in harmony. Supple with fine follow through of berry fruit and light herbal notes and a dash of soil adding complexity. I would have expected a little more power here but this is really very well balanced and quite pretty. 89pts

This red exudes cherry, licorice, violet and tar aromas and flavors married to a firm, vibrant structure. Shuts down a little at midpal - ate, but the sweet fruit comes back with a vengeance on the long finish. Best from 2016 through 2035.- B.S. Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Ceretto Barolo Bricco Rocche Prapo 750ml

This shows impressive richness and density with loads of fruit yet balanced and beautiful. Full and velvety. Chewy and rich. Very structured. Savory and almost salty. One of best ever Prapos. Try in 2016. James Suckling. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Ceretto Barolo Bricco Rocche Prapo 750ml

The 2008 Barolo Prapo flows with sumptuous layers of dark fruit, menthol, licorice and tar. It is a rich, generous Barolo, with more than enough fruit to stand up to the French oak. There is plenty of Serralunga character in the glass. This, too, is ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Ceretto Barolo Bricco Rocche Prapo 750ml

Ceretto's finest Barolo of the vintage appears to be the 1998 Barolo Bricco Rocche. An incredibly complex perfume of creosote, minerals, smoke, soy, black cherries, and incense is accompanied by a full-bodied, sweet, layered, powerful wine with outstanding balance. Long as well as elegant, this beauty will be at its finest between 2002-2017.
