Product Description

"Smoke, incense, tar and licorice meld into layers of dark red fruit in the 2009 Barbaresco Bernardot. I especially like the vibrancy and energy here, two qualities that are hard to find in 2009. There is a centeredness and intensity of fruit that is hugely appealing. At the same time the Bernardot has soft, refined tannins that contribute to its fabulous overall balance. A final burst of gorgeous, balsamic-infused fruit informs the dark, powerful finish. I continue to like what is happening at Ceretto. This is a great showing. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. 

It’s great to see Ceretto – one of Piedmont’s iconic families – doing so well after a lackluster period in the 1990s and early 2000s. Ceretto’s top 2009 Barbareschi are easily among the very best of the year."

Ceretto Barbaresco Bricco Asili Bernadotte 2008
"The 2008 Barbaresco Bernardot emerges from the glass with freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, spices and licorice. Here, too, the fruit is fairly immediate, and while there is good underlying structure, I don’t see the Bernardot as a super long-term ager. Floral, spiced notes reappear on the well-articulated, nuanced finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023. "

Ceretto Barbaresco Bricco Asili Bernadotte 2007
The 2007 Barbaresco Bernardot is a highly attractive, soft wine redolent of crushed flowers, spices, licorice, tobacco and tar. Everything comes together beautifully in this textured, yet mid-weight, expressive Barbaresco. Spices, menthol and licorice linger on the impeccable, harmonious finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027.

Medium red with an amber rime.  Highly aromatic nose combines strawberry, mocha, spices, cedar, dried flowers and truffle, lifted by a sexy note of white flowers.  Round and fat on the palate, with harmonious acidity and good savory cling giving shape to the raspberry, strawberry, truffle and floral flavors.  Sexy, seamless wine with a light touch.  The broad finish features a firm tannic spine and good subtle persistence.
