Intense ruby red in colour, with garnet hues. Fresh and complex aromas of macerated cherries, plums, dried roses, minerals and spices surround a terrific concentration and depth. This Barolo is creamy and broad, racy and refined. The flavours explode with a supple and persistent roundness. The finish is long and elegant with fine grained tannins. Fruit is everywhere. This is a masterful Barolo, long-lived and beautiful.
97 Points - James Suckling This is a very perfumed red with cherry, strawberry and rose petal aromas that follow through to a full body, ultra-fine tannins and a fresh finish. Pretty and energetic acidity gives focus and backbone to the wine. So delicious already but better in 2021.
95 Points - Vinous The 2012 Barolo Cerequio is arguably the most complete of these wines, as it brings together aromatic complexity, dense fruit and fabulous balance. All the elements flesh out in a rich, sumptuous Barolo endowed with real power and depth, yet there is plenty of the nuance that distinguishes Cerequio. There are a number of terrific wines in this lineup, but the Cerequio is the wine that seems to be the most dialed in today. With time in the glass, the intensity of both fruit and tannin simply continues to blossom.
