Ceretto Monsordo Bernardina Barbaresco Asij 2007

Ceretto Monsordo Bernardina Barbaresco Asij 750ml 2007      
Sku: 13860

For more than 80 years the Ceretto family has been making wine in Piedmontís Langhe. The family is most well known for producing coveted single-vineyard estate grown Nebbiolo wines and high quality Arneis and Moscato. Their wine production covers seven separate estates, while an eighth (I Vignaiolo di Santo Stefano) is co-owned along with two other growers. The Cerettos were the first producers in Piedmont to use stainless steel for fermenting red wine and adopted other modern techniques, including temperature control for fermentation, reduced maceration times and new oak aging. When Ceretto produced its first Arneis, only 74 acres of this grape were planted in the region. Today there are more than 1,200 acres planted to Arneis. The Ceretto Arneis is considered the benchmark and one in every five bottles of Arneis produced in Piedmont bears the Blange label.

Tasting notes
Persistent aromas of sun drenched flowers. Well balanced with good acidity.

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Dec 2010)
Ceretto’s 2007 Barbaresco Asij offers up loads up plump dark fruit, spices, vanillin and copious French oak in an accessible style. The warm, open personality of the vintage is on full display, but excessive oak has left the wine with tannins that are unusually hard for an entry-level wine meant to be enjoyed upon release. That said, in 2007 the Asij shows marvelous purity in its fruit, particularly with a little air, which allows some of the excess oakiness to blow off. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

Technical notes
The vineyards, located in Barbaresco and Treiso, are planted on 3 soil types Ė clay (49%), silt (32%) and sand (19%). Fermented in stainless steel. Aged 18 months in French oak barriques (30% new) light to medium toast.
