Really enjoyed this wine. It's complex, has a longer finish with hints of dried fruit. Goes great with a Pecorino Tartufalo cheese (really brings out the truffle flavors in the cheese)

Wine Spectator ReviewRated 91Very ripe and woody, with coffee and tea undertones. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. A blockbuster style, but there's some underlying class. Needs bottle time. Best after 2011.Wine Tasting NotesCeretto Barolo Zonchera is a relatively light garnet color, with a pronounced and approachable nose of ripe redcurrant fruit with textbook notes of violets overlaid with a tarry earth and mineral character that is typical of the region. On the palate it is full-bodied, showing tannic strength without being astringent, good acidity, moderate alcohol and a long finish. This is a silky, stylish wine, that is true to its roots typifying the best Piedmonte tradition without being old-fashioned. It marries perfectly with the most robust and full-bodied dishes and strongly flavored cheeses.
