Winemaker 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

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

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.
