2017 Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cerretta

Posted by Ian McFadden

"Wonderfully translucent and nuanced" - Antonio Galloni


No other producer that I've tasted reaches the level of gracefulness and precision that Conterno did in 2017. The Barolo Cerretta serves as a monument to what Conterno achieved in 2017.

Out of Conterno's lineup, Cerretta always amazes with how it combines finesse, raw power, and thrilling intensity. For all of Cerretta’s muscle, it maintains a sense of refinement and grace.

The 2017 Cerretta boasts an explosive spectrum of dark red cherry, plum, spice, cedar and scorched earth. All of this is presented with unbridled energy and elegance. It's deeply soulful and intense, flaunting the perfectionism that Conterno is famous for.

Roberto Conterno has exacting standards and focuses on every little detail. The sum is an almost logic-defying profundity. The 2017 Cerretta is yet another reminder of how impressive the results are.
