Antonio Galloni recently proclaimed: “I was blown away by the wines I tasted at Ceretto during my most recent visit. The 2013 Barolos are off the charts.” We are therefore delighted to offer three of their 2013 Barolos, each one receiving 95 points or more from both Antonio Galloni and James Suckling.


The critics are extolling the virtues of this Barolo vintage:


“Barolo’s 2013 vintage is indeed the region’s best since 2008… Indeed the 2013s have a comparable structure to the excellent 2010 vintage, but the 2013s are overall more refined and focussed as well as more consistent in quality.” – James Suckling


“Sublime finesse and elegance… Readers will find a number of thrilling, utterly captivating wines that speak to the pedigree and class that are the signatures of the best Barolo vintages… In many cases the 2013s remind me of the 2008s, but with more depth, better balance and more consistency.” – Antonio Galloni .


Galloni goes a step further, advising his readers that “today is a great time to be buying Piedmont wines” because, despite a series of strong Barolo vintages (in both quality and quantity), these wines are being overlooked as consumer interest sways back towards Bordeaux. As a result prices of Barolo are not set to rise considerably, providing “fabulous opportunities for savvy consumers to build good collections for the future.”


In 1986 Wine Spectator put Bruno and Marcello Ceretto on their front cover, praising the “Barolo Brothers”. This pair painstakingly acquired their vineyards over the last 40 years, and these have been organically farmed since 2010. The 11 hectares in Barolo produce their flagship wines.


The “magnificent” (Galloni) Bricco Rocche comes from Castiglione Falletto, a monopole owned by Ceretto and the smallest geographic area within the Barolo DOCG. Brunate is a reference point for the entire appellation and Ceretto’s 2013 has “pedigree and class” (Galloni). And finally, the slow maturing Prapò vineyard has produced “one of the most polished, refined Barolos I have ever tasted” from Serralunga, according to Antonio Galloni.
