In the vineyard-dressed landscape of the Langhe, the steep hillsides are legendary to Italy’s Piedmont region. Amidst the myriad of notable varieties in the region, none reigns supreme like the Nebbiolo grape. For three generations, the Ceretto family has been crafting estate-grown wines that express true varietal character with purity and elegance from top vineyard sites – regal wines evocative of pedigree and importance. One of the largest landowners in Piedmont, with more than 400 acres of estate-owned vineyards including the prestigious DOCG areas of Barolo and Barbaresco, Ceretto is known not just for those famous wines but also for Arneis, an indigenous white grape that the Ceretto family single-handedly brought back from obscurity.
Care of the land, agricultural diversity, rigorous selection standards and a state-of-the-art winery are each integral to the precision of these wines. Join owner, Federico Ceretto for an exploration of DOCG Nebbiolo-based wines from Barolo and Barbaresco Crus as well as the family’s Blangé Arneis, a refreshing, mineral white that enlivens the senses and reminds us all that while wine can be particularly serious, it can also be pure fun.
