The 2010 Barbaresco Bernardot also delivers pretty hues of crushed granite and spice with smoky end-notes of tobacco and cedar that add a mysterious, seductive flair. This is a solid, well-made Barbaresco that captures the overall balance and intensity of the 2010 vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

This beautiful vineyard, located below the village of Treiso, towards the Pertinace hamlet, has been considered one of the best of the commune for more than a century. It is thought to be the natural continuation of the Nerve, which has the same orientation and position of the land. The vineyard is enclosed in a natural amphitheater and this formation creates a special microclimate very favourable to the vines, which is not affected by considerable height (400 meters in the upper-most part). Ceretto works 4.8 hectares of this cru biodynamically, which year after year gives us more and more expressive wines, extremely pleasing on the palate and remarkably dynamic.
