A Legend is Born

The great Barolo house of Gi­a­como Con­terno will soon re­lease a new red, 2010 Gi­a­como Con­terno Barolo Ceretta. The win­ery is fa­mous for mak­ing long-aged Baro­los un­der the name Mon­fortino, but wine­maker Roberto Con­terno ex­plains that the Ceretta is a new in­ter­pre­ta­tion of Barolo for his win­ery. The small vine­yard from which the wine comes, near the town of Ser­ralunga d’alba, was pur­chased in 2008. The wine shows phe­nom­e­nal depth and in­ten­sity, with ex­cel­lent pu­rity and pol­ish. Only 2,000 mag­nums and 150 three-litre bot­tles were made of the first re­lease. 100 points
