Cerrati in Serralunga d’Alba
Tenuta Cucco stands at the foot of the suggestive Serralunga d’Alba castle. Barolo Cerrati comes from a single small ancient vineyard, one of the best suited in Serralunga, located on the top of the hill, and Tenuta Cucco is the only winery offering it to the market. Due to the frosts and drought, the 2017 vintage was limited only to a few thousand bottles, yet of extraordinary quality and concentration. The owners of the winery are extremely attentive to the territory and the sustainability of their wines, which not only are organic, but are also made respecting the rhythm of the nature, without the use of chemicals either in the cellar or in the vineyard. The results are extremely elegant and clean wines that can age for a long time.
Cerrati 2017 is characterized by a great concentration and has an intense ruby color with garnet reflections. To the nose shows hints are floral, lilacs and violets, as well as raspberries and strawberries, followed by balsamic herbs such as the mint and the marjoram, then ethereal notes. In the mouth it is sensual yet intense, with a dense tannic texture, elegant but young and slightly gripping. Beautiful acidity and peculiar mineral vein.
This chart has the only aim of giving a preliminary idea of the price history of the wine in wine-searcher.com. It’s just a partial information, the only global readily available, since many factors influence the price in wine-searcher.com and are neither strictly related with the quality performances of the wine nor with its scarcity/abundance on the market.
