  • Score: 92 Vintage 2019 Wine Spectator A taut, firmly structured red highlighted by a mix of cherry, plum, eucalyptus, earth and iron flavors. This has all the components in the right places, but remains on the austere side for now. Best from 2027 through 2043. 500 cases made. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2017 Wine Spectator A supple yet firmly structured red, this exhibits strawberry, cherry, currant, menthol and iron flavors. Taut and dense with tannins, yet remains lithe and long. Best from 2024 through 2040. 500 cases made, 80 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2015 Wine Advocate The Garesio 2015 Barolo Cerretta opens to aromas of dried cherry, camphor ash, candied orange skin and wet terracotta. The Cerretta offers a strong mineral identity with some iron ore or iodine showing up at the back. The tannins are integrated but dry, and the mouthfeel is thin, long and dusty. Like the other Barolo from Garesio with fruit from Serralunga d'Alba (also reviewed here), this wine could use some more primary fruit, especially now in its youth. Dried herbs and aniseed pop up on the finish. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2015 Wine Enthusiast This opens with appealing aromas of rose petal, red berry and baking spice. The vibrant palate offers crushed raspberry, cinnamon and licorice alongside firm, refined tannins. Drink 2022–2029. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2013 Wine Enthusiast Enticing scents of rose, blue flower, vanilla and berry escape the glass. On the palate, firm fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity frame cherry, strawberry and a hint of clove. Drink after 2023. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
