Ceretto Prapó Barolo Nebbiolo 1997

9.226 ratings on Delectable

Reminiscent of a right bank Pomerol from the late forties, the dark garnet/amber-edged 1997 Barolo Prapo possesses aromas and flavors of singed leather, espresso, melted caramel, black cherries, smoke, and Christmas fruitcake. Atypical for a young Nebbiolo, it is succulent, fleshy, and undeniably compelling, rich, seamless, and concentrated. Drink it over the next 12-15 years. Robert Parker

This is why I love Barolo. First coravined in 2013, again several times in 2014, finally popped the cork.

In a state that I feel like I'm interrupting the evolution of this wine. It looks like pale red Nebbiolo, but has darker fruited notes across the nose & palate. Light tarry/earthy character with some smoky truffle secondary notes emerging. Acidity is in front of tannins on the structure front, but that backbone and power are persistent. Nearly age 20 & showing quite well.

An interesting balance of secondary savoriness, spicy black tea-like tannins, darker than expected fruit and tons of acidic structure. Evolving & fascinating.
