Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) This is a classic Barolo - light garnet in color with Barolo's quintessential aromas of roses, tart cherries, and hints of truffles. Ceretto's Zonchera is extraordinarily approachable now, but it will continue to reward the patient wine drinker as it evolves over the course of several years.

  • International Wine Cellar
    (1997 Vintage) Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 93, November/December 2000 Medium red-orange. Superripe aromas of brown spices, nuts, earth and menthol. Soft, full and sweet in the mouth; shows a roasted ripeness and lovely lush texture yet maintains good vinosity. Finishes with serious tannins and complex notes of leather, earth, mocha and camphor. A very good Barolo blend.
