2015

A stunning, weightless Cerequio. Beguiling and aromatic, so easy on the eye and pliable in texture but persistent too. A length and intensity that belies its elegance. Silky strawberry, red cherry and kirsch fruit. Sensual and caressing but with a brightness that prolongs the haunting finish. Ravishing Barolo. One of the historic single vineyards of La Morra, south-facing and planted at 300 metres above sea level on sandy clay soils. On average 300 cases per year are produced.

James Suckling

Superb complexity on the nose with crushed berries, dried flowers, tar, licorice and aniseed. Full body, firm tannins and superb depth and intesity. Goes on for minutes and changes all the time. Drink from 2023.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Barolo Cerequio shows impressive and firm construction; however, the wine remains delicate and finessed all the while. This is a real stunner with inner fiber that is as strong, but as softly textured, as the highest quality silk. Aromas of wild cherry, violets, licorice and tar are in a tight, nascent state at this young stage. This implies they will blossom with time, coming into focus with greater intensity and complexity as the wine continues its careful bottle aging. This wine shows an evident mineral signature at the back
