Giacomo Conterno Barbera d'Alba Cerretta 2014
JS93: "Exquisite nose of orange peel, flowers and ripe fruit. Fresh and beautiful. Hints of tar. Medium to full body, fine and fresh fruit and a lively finish. Drink now. October 2016 release."
Giacomo Conterno is one of the greatest names in Piedmont. The estate was founded in 1908 just outside Monforte d’Alba. Today, Roberto Conterno, the perfectionist winemaker, focuses only on Nebbiolo and Barbera. Cerretta comes from the Serralunga d’Alba vineyard site with clay soils and 20-year-old vines. This is fresh and beautiful, with vibrant mixed red berry fruit and a lively finish. 100% Barbera.
