96 Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous
"The 2008 Barolo Vigna Bricco Cerretta shows the muscle of Serralunga within the context of the year. Dark red fruit, flowers, licorice and tar are some of the nuances that emerge from this refined Barolo. There is plenty of density in the glass. The 2008 is rich, deep and muscular all the way through to the finish. There is plenty of Serraluga character here."
Unreal single vineyard Barolo at a tremendous price!
Elio Altare is red hot right now, and we've got one of his best wines! From the great commune of Serralunga d'alba is this stunning single vineyard Barolo from the great Cru of Cerretta.

We know that Barolo is red hot right now, and this is the kind of offer that will not come along often! It'll be hard to stock up on this, as we only have a small amount to offer, but we wanted to make a splash and a lucky few happy customers along the way! Don't miss out on this incredible offer that will age effortlessly in your cellar!
" Elio Altare is universally acknowledged to be one of the world's greatest winemakers. Altare was a leader of the revolution in cellar and vineyard technique in the Barolo zone; among his many now-commonplace innovations were the use of rotary fermenters, a short maceration period, and the use of small barriques for aging. The resulting wines, from Dolcetto to Barbera to Barolo, are often considered to be the ultimate expressions of the soft, fragrant and lush qualities characteristic of the commune of La Morra, and today Altare is mentor to many of the younger generation of La Morra barolisti including Mauro Veglio, Mauro Molino, and the Revello brothers - his influence even extends to northern Ghemme where he lends advice to the Ioppa family.
Elio owns 5 hectares and rents four more, planted in the ratio 40 percent Nebbiolo, 30 percent Dolcetto, 25 percent Barbera and 5 percent Cabernet Sauvingon. The best of the local vineyards each comprise their own amphitheatre, south or south-east facing slopes at 280 metres above sea level on a sandy, tufaceous, marly soil. Elio Altare has vines in two of those: 1.5 ha of 50-plus year old vines in Arborina, and a small parcel in Brunate which he started renting in 1995. These vines are pruned very severely. Altare wants no more than 1.5 kilos of grapes per vine., And there are merely 5500 vines per hectare. This is the real key, Altare maintains, plus an organic approach to viticulture. "You can't make great wine without concentrated fruit." - Importer
