The Langhe like the old West: mysterious, sun-blessed moorland, and hills which are still wild and untamable despite the Cartesian logic of their division into rows of vines. An El Dorado. A frontier land with its own gold rushes, pioneers, family sagas, gambles that paid off and hard-earned fortunes, and blood ties that develop into deep roots. The history of the Ceretto brand has all of this: three generations whose mission for more than seventy years has been excellence in wine, ambassador of Piedmont and Italy throughout the world. It was Riccardo, the founder, who decided to harness the creative energy of a unique region by planting the first vineyards and setting up the original nucleus of the family firm in Alba. The turning-point in terms of future development came in the Sixties however, with the arrival on the scene of his sons: Bruno, at the helm of the commercial side of the business, and Marcello, as Technical Director. As unlike yet united and complementary as only certain close relatives Read more »

  • I am pretty new to snooth, and just stumbled across the intro page.  I am the son of one of the owners of a very nice, very small winery in Southern Humboldt, CA.  We are between two fine Pinot areas, Sonoma and Oregon.  So, surpise!  In the right spots here, Pinot Noir does very well.  We also make Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, along with met...

  • Barbaresco Asij DOCG 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Nice, high-toned aromatics with a lean feel to the floral, rosehip and slightly oaky tones that accent the core of red fruits. In the mouth this has a very well presented inner core of sweet, ripe fruits that are clear and transparent with soft tannins and nice acids giving the fruits a bit of a cranberry tone. 90pts Read More

  • Azienda Bricco Rocche Ceretto Barolo Bricco Rocche 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Very evolved on the nose with a big porcini note and notes of bullion and burnt orange peel that float above the apricot and strawberry fruit. An unusual juxtaposition of fresh and aged. Bright and rigid in the mouth with great ripe tannins that support a big core of decidedly earthy and savory fruits. The tannins really come to dominate the fin... Read More

  • Azienda Bricco Rocche Ceretto Barolo Brunate 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Nice richness on the nose with notes of old wood, a hint of vanilla, balsamic, rosin notes and a nuance of roast veal. In the mouth this is rich with soft tannins though quite tight. there is fine balance with good freshness to the fruit in a fairly ripe style. This should be accessible soon. 90pts Read More

  • Azienda Ceretto s.r.l. Barolo Grignore 1971

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty on the nose with a touch of artificial fruit flavor and lots of powdered sugar that reminded of a bag of crushed PEZ candy. There were a few nice hints of nettle that added freshness. In the mouth this was really attenuated with moutains of acidity though with food this revealed pure, lean and refined red fruits with nuanced sand herb and ... Read More

  • Azienda Monsordo Bernardina Ceretto Langhe Monsordo 2002

    Snoothrank:

    A few things about this wine. First, the bottle is very handsome. All black with raised bumps spelling out Monsordo. Bring this to a dinner party and everyone will be fascinated by it.Second, it's a blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, and Nebbiolo. I've had this wine a few times and it pairs really well with a wide array of foods. Decent acidity, ... Read More
