Made from 100% Nebbiolo, this wine was first bottled in 1987. The vines are planted in the Cerequio vineyard at a density of 1,620 plants per acre, and the grapes are harvested in late September. The wine is aged in a combination of 1/3 new and 2/3 used French oak barriques for two years, and it is refined for one year before being cellared for one additional year in bottle.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Barolo Cerequio opens with an utterly beguiling, captivating bouquet that leads to ripe red fruit, flowers, minerals and spices, all framed by sweet, silky tannins. Aromatics, textural elegance and freshness come together in this energetic, vivid Barolo. The finish is exceptionally long, pure and fresh, which suggests the wine will age gracefully for many years. The 2006 Barolo Cerequio is emerging as one of the finest wines in this important vintage. Simply put, it is awesome! Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

Wine SpectatorThis elegant 2006 offers sandalwood, tobacco and plum aromas, with spice flavors. Still firm on the finish, where the tannins are most prominent, with a touch of licorice. Drink now through 2028.
