Note di degustazione

If an excellent grape is the starting point necessary for achieving a great wine, in the same way, an illustrious collaboration is the key to the development of an excellent oenological project.

The Cerasco project stems from the agreement between Tenute d'Italia and an important company belonging to the area covered by the prestigious denomination of controlled and guaranteed origin (D.O.C.G.)  Barolo.

Since this specification requires that each production phase - from the production of the grapes to the bottling - takes place within the aforementioned district, this partnership has required a constant labour of co-ordination between the two companies, communication and comparison, up to the processing (and realization) of a product that is not only a witness to the best oenological technical expertise, but also of the extraordinary opportunities that the collaborative dimension, if wisely conducted, can offer.

Cerasco is proposed as a Barolo that faithfully respects tradition, with visual, olfactory and gustatory characteristics that are more than ever typical and recognisable.

An intense ruby red colour, with fascinating garnet reflections, its olfactory profile is ample and complex: the floral suggestions - in which rose and violet dominate - are combined with fruity notes - raspberry, cherry and plum - and elegant additional notes spiced with cocoa, black pepper, tobacco and cloves. The olfactory profile is perfected by a delicate balsamic note.

To the palate it is warm, full, yet extraordinarily fresh and characterised by a pleasing velvety tannin: the impressions - floral and balsamic, perfectly harmonious with what was presented to the nose, guaranteeing a significant aromatic persistence.

Cerasco, like every great Barolo, lends itself perfectly as a meditative wine, but certainly finds its most excellent expression when served with furred and feathered game, venison stews and roast guinea fowl.

It must never be undervalued as a companion to typical regional dishes, or even with dishes based on truffles and matured cheeses such as Castelmagno.
