Ceretto Bricco Asili Barbaresco Bernardot 2007

Ceretto Bricco Asili Barbaresco Bernardot 750ml 2007     
Sku: 22052

For more than 80 years the Ceretto family has been making wine in Piedmontís Langhe. The family is most well known for producing coveted single-vineyard estate grown Nebbiolo wines and high quality Arneis and Moscato. Their wine production covers seven separate estates, while an eighth (I Vignaiolo di Santo Stefano) is co-owned along with two other growers. The Cerettos were the first producers in Piedmont to use stainless steel for fermenting red wine and adopted other modern techniques, including temperature control for fermentation, reduced maceration times and new oak aging. When Ceretto produced its first Arneis, only 74 acres of this grape were planted in the region. Today there are more than 1,200 acres planted to Arneis. The Ceretto Arneis is considered the benchmark and one in every five bottles of Arneis produced in Piedmont bears the Blange label.

Tasting notes
Deep ruby in the glass, the wine has aromas of deepred fruit, with slight notes of toast and spice. Made in a more modern style, this Barbaresco is concentrated and focused.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 93 points (Dec 2010)
The 2007 Barbaresco Bernardot is a highly attractive, soft wine redolent of crushed flowers, spices, licorice, tobacco and tar. Everything comes together beautifully in this textured, yet mid-weight, expressive Barbaresco. Spices, menthol and licorice linger on the impeccable, harmonious finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027. ”

Technical notes
Purchased in 1997, Bernardot is located in Treiso and sits at an elevation of 1,300 feet facing south. Composed of three different soils, (clay 42%, silt 35% and sand 23%) it was entirely replanted from 1998-2000. The grapes were hand-picked, destemmed and transferred to stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks for fermentation followed by a brief maceration. The wine aged in 300L French oak barriques (50% new) for 22 months at the Cerettoís Bricco Asili estate.
