Barolo docg Cerequio

C

Cerequio is an amphitheater of vines on the Langhe terrace, between Barolo, Castiglione Falletto, and Monforte, protected by cold winds.

Its soil made of sand (20%), loam (50%), and clay (30%) produces tannic, solid-bodied, and powerful wines. The vineyard is located at a height of about 320 m (1050 ft.) a.s.l. and has an eastward sun exposure. The olfactory bouquet of this cru is rich and complex: the dominating scents are cherry, violet, and balsamic notes, as well as refined hints of vanilla, liquorish, dried rose, and tar.
