Ceretto Barbaresco Bernadot 2014
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco|
The 2014 Barbaresco Bernadot is powerful, ample and seductive, with all of the breadth that is so typical of Barbarescos from Treiso. Deeply spiced aromatics meld into a core of intense dark red and blue-hued fruits as this generous, super-expressive Barbaresco shows off its personality. All the elements simply fall into place in an impeccable, beautifully crafted Barbaresco from Ceretto. The 2014 is all class.
The 2014 Barbaresco Bernadot is a more structured and opulent wine with thick lines and a dark core of black fruit. Thanks to vineyards in Treiso, the wine delivers extra power and density with deep layers of blackberry, spice and crushed river stone. This Barbaresco boasts a pretty layering effect that peels back to show delicate intensity and finesse.
A mix of earth, underbrush, leather, juniper and tar aromas continue on the palate in this savory Nebbiolo. Firmly structured, finishing long and dry, with a tobacco note. Best from 2020 through 2034. 416 cases made, 40 cases imported.
This opens with French oak, vanilla, toast and coconut aromas. The oak-derived qualities carry over to palate, along with sour cherry, raspberry compote and espresso flavors while tight, close-grained tannins grip the finish.
