This wine is a true beauty. In this release of 5,240 bottles, the 2016 Barolo Cerretta takes that Nebbiolo purity and intensity up a significant notch, especially when you compare this cru to Schiavenza's classic Barolo and its Barolo made with fruit sourced across Serralunga d'Alba. You get a lot of expressive clarity here, with a pristine delivery that puts emphasis on wild berry fruits, blood orange, rusty earth and even a touch of bitter cacao. I love the manner in which all those aromas pile together in such a nicely layered manner. Monica Larner – The Wine Advocate

This is really tannic, yet the tannins are fine-grained and impressive, carrying chocolate, berry and hazelnut notes. It’s full-bodied, very sleek and polished. Persistent finish. Better after 2023. James Suckling

Enticing aromas and flavors of rose, cherry, black tea, tar, iron and tobacco grace this sleek red. It starts out silky, finishing with grip, courtesy of the firm, polished tannins. Shows excellent balance and length. Best from 2023 through 2045. 436 cases made, 166 cases imported. - Wine Spectator

The 2016 Barolo Cerretta is a bold, racy wine. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, rose petal and sweet spice are all laced together. A touch of new oak works well here in shaping the wine without being overpowering. This is an especially gracious, mid-weight Barolo for Serralunga, but then again, that is the personality of Cerretta. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
