Ettore Germano’s 2009 Barolo Cerretta shows added layers of spice and tobacco that play a supporting role to generous fruit layers. The warm 2009 growing season has left its mark in terms of the ripeness and softness of the fruit. The Cerretta does a very good job of containing all that fruity generosity within the firmer context of its tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.
