  • For more than seventy years, Ceretto has produced excellent wines and functioned as the "ambassador" of Piedmont to the outside world
  • In 1960s, the arrival of the "Ceretto Brothers" (Bruno and Marcello) further developed the estate, purchasing over 120 hectaures of land across Alba
  • In addition to wines, the family wants to bring the best from Piedmont to everybody - hazelnut, cheese, chocolate, cuisine and local culture
  • If you have a chance to visit Piedmont, not only we would recommend you to try their wines, but definitely make a trip to their winery, it's almost like an architectural wonder sitting on top of the vineyards

Wine Advocate: 94
"The 2003 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto is a fascinating wine. It is classic Giacosa, with a lovely core of sweet roses, raspberries, licorice and menthol that is currently hiding under an imposing wall of tannins. It is also a wine of contrasts, at times open and accessible, at others brooding and shut down. As it sits in the glass the fruit gradually emerges to fill out the wine’s structure. It had only improved when I re-tasted it several days after first opening the bottle. That said, it will require further cellaring to soften the tannins, as the wine has shut down considerably since bottling. Made from the heart of the Falletto vineyard, it clearly benefits from the age of the vines in these selected plots." (Oct 2007)

 

Wine Spectator: 92
"A little jammy on the nose, with lots of strawberry. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, chewy finish. Slightly one-dimensional now, but should develop wonderfully over time." (Oct 2007)
