Smoke ash and tar develop in the glass. The 2009 Cerretta is an intense virile Barbera that needs at least a few years in bottle to drop some of its baby fat. The richness and depth are impressive considering this is only the second vintage Conterno has made the wine. Mineral notes develop on the finish but the Cerretta is ultimately more about fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. -AG
