The 2009 Barolo Brunate opens with savory aromas of barbecue smoke, cured meat and crushed granite, although there is not much fruity brightness to hope for long cellar aging. In fact, slightly gritty tannins and tertiary aromas inspire me to drink this sooner rather than later. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.

92 points from Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Winery Notes:

It is one of the most representative vineyards of the Commune of La Morra and has always been considered one of points of reference for the entire appellation. It is an inter-commune vineyard, the plot (good size, comprising a total of 28 hectares) is shared, from an administrative point of view, between the towns of Barolo and La Morra. As regards the soil profile, the two sides of the two Communes are not particularly different, and even the exposure (South / Southeast) is substantially homogeneous; the only variable the altitude: in fact, it ranges from 230 meters above sea level to more than 400 meters. The soils, from the Tortonian period, feature marle of S. Agata Fossils, with a good presence of sand, particularly in the highest part of the hill. The Ceretto family owns, in Brunate, just over five and a half hectares.
