1997 Ceretto, Barolo Prapó, Piedmont, Italy

Very light brownish colour. Fart, leather, “horse”, cherry and strawberries. The taste teased me somewhat as it initial was lacking in fruit and the colour could suggest an elderly wine – but despite the dominate acidity it has a great warmth in the closing. When its identity was revealed it’s profile suddenly made sense. So why didn’t I guess it was Piemonte…bummer! (94)
