Ceretto is a third generation family wine enterprise that was founded more than 70 years ago in the wonderful Piedmont region of Italy. It has built up its impressive international reputation going by the motto of achieving excellence in wine, and by acting as an ambassador for Piedmont and Italy throughout the world.
This vineyard, located half-way between the hamlet of Baudana and the village of Serralunga d'Alba, is without a doubt one of the best exposed plots of the eastern side of the town. Ceretto owns 2.4 hectares (of the 8.5 hectares of the total sub-zone) featuring a high average age of the vines, planted in the '70s. Compared to the western side of the appellation, the Prapò vineyard has a gap in the harvest period, which in some years may exceed 10 days; this allows the grapes to mature slowly and exhibit good polyphenolics.
What fascinating aromas of perfume and flowers with dried-citrus undertones. Strawberries, too. Full body, chewy tannins and a vivid finish. Ethereal in many ways. Try drinking in 2022. Great value considering the quality. Date Tasted: Feb 2017; Rating: 95 Points; James Suckling
The 2013 Barolo Prapò exudes resonance, with all of the breadth and richness that is typical of this site. Creamy and beautifully textured, the 2013 wraps around the palate with fabulous depth from start to finish. Dark red cherry, pomegranate, blood orange and rose petal overtones are fused into the deep, voluptuous finish. This is one of the most polished, refined Barolos I have ever tasted from Prapò, a Serralunga site that tends to yield firm, muscular Barolos.
