Ceretto's 2016 Barbaresco is bright and very nicely focused, with tremendous energy and a sense of translucent vibrancy that is simply compelling. Sweet red berry and floral notes are finely sketched in this gorgeous positively striking Barbaresco from Ceretto. I tasted the 2016 from cask prior to bottling. The straight Barbaresco is a blend of 65% Bernardot and 35% Asili from younger vines and lower, less well-exposed parcels. More importantly, though, the straight Barbaresco is a terrific introduction to the vintage at Ceretto.
