Classified as a “first-class cru” by Renato Ratti in his “Mappa del Barolo” (1965), and defined as a “choice zone” by the scrupulous agronomist Lorenzo Fantini in the first monograph on winegrowing in the Cuneo area, Cerequio is without doubt one of the most prestigious Barolo vineyards.
Unlike the nearby “Brunate”, this Additional Geographic Indication
(MGA) lies on two opposite hillsides between the small towns of Barolo and La Morra and enjoys a truly exceptional microclimate that has earned it the name the “Langhe Riviera”.
The plot of land we own, located in the more south-easterly area of the MGA, in Barolo has a particularly exceptional microclimate, where the wind-sheltered position means we are able to maximise and accent the best qualities of the vineyard.
Our Barolo DOCG Cerequio, obtained from this Barolo “Riviera” at 300 metres above sea level, develops more warmly and progressively than the products of the surrounding crus, achieving an enveloping, harmonious taste that is flavoursome, long and sapid on the palate
An example of Langhe excellence and our winery’s flagship product, Barolo Cerequio was a protagonist at Ba&Ba International 2017 (the preview of Barolo & Barbaresco for a panel of international sommeliers).
Steadfastly convinced that a great wine comes above all from a great vineyard and a great terroir, we believe Barolo Cerequio DOCG embodies the highest expression of the philosophy that guides our work: quality without compromises.
