Barolo, 'Cerretta', Altare (2011)
Just 500 cases are made each year. Altare's vines enjoy southern exposure and are grown mostly in clay. Yields average about 5 tons per hectare. Maceration is relatively short at 4 to 5 days, but rotary fermenters bring depth and structure. The Cerretta is aged for two years in French barriques.
