    Winemaker's Notes:

    This is a soft, smooth, round Barolo. With its moderate tannins, its alcohol and acidity are generally well balanced. Extraordinarily easy to drink just a few months after bottling, in outstanding vintages it can also be cellared for considerably longer than 10 years. Pair with red meat dishes and richly prepared game.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Barolo Zonchera is a pretty, somewhat ethereal wine laced with crushed flowers, berries, spices, minerals, all of which come together in a firm, classic style for this house. The 2006 is one of the finest recent vintages of the Zonchera I can remember tasting. It isn't a huge wine, but the balance and the integration of the oak in particular are both first-rate. I would prefer to drink this relatively early as I am not sure there is enough fruit to support extended cellaring. Still, it is a fabulous effort from Ceretto in what has often been an underachieving bottling in the past. Well done. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
