Vietti “Cerequio” Barolo 2019


2018 is the first vintage of the Cru Cerequio produced by Vietti. The grapes to produce this wine are sourced from the historical Cru vineyard Cerequio. Vietti’s parcel of about 1 hectare size is located in the Barolo municipality. It is facing south, at an altitude of approximately 350 meters a.s.l.. The average age of the grapevines is 35 years, and the soil is calcareous and clayey with Sant’Agata’s marls.

The 2019 Barolo Cerequio is a worthy follow up to the stellar 2018. Aromatic and deeply pitched, the 2019 races across the palate with remarkable depth and intensity. Crushed red berry fruit, rose petal, mint and cinnamon all open in the glass, but it is the wine’s silkiness and suppleness that impresses most. A kick of acids and tannins puts an exclamation point on the finish. This is a gorgeous Cerequio that takes all the finesse this site offers, and then turns up the volume. What a wine.

98 pts – A. Galloni, Vinous January 2023
