About This Wine

Conterno's 2018 Cerretta is an extraordinary vintage for the wine.

In 2018, Cerretta rivals Francia in a vintage where no wine was earmarked for Monfortino. This is no simple feat. 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.

This is on bold display in the 2018. It boasts an incredible purity of fruit with an explosive spectrum of dark red cherry, plum, spice, cedar, and scorched earth. I really like how well-proportioned and precise the wine is. The 2018 Cerretta flaunts 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 2018 Cerretta is yet another reminder of how impressive the results are.
