Who or What is Ceretto? Ceretto Aziende Vitivinicole srl (formerly known as Ceretto srl) is a corporation owned by the Ceretto family. It is the parent company for several wineries in the Langhe Hills of Southern Piedmont. Their nomenclature for wineries and wines is quite confusing. The goal of these slides is to relieve some of this confusion. According to their website (www.ceretto.com), these wineries are autonomous from a production point of view, but being under the one umbrella fosters synergy between the company's technical and sales staffs.www.ceretto.com © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com2
Italian Winery Terminology In Italian, Azienda means business. An Azienda Vinicola is a business where wine is made, i.e. a winery. An Azienda Agricola is a farming business. In the context of wine, it is a business where wine is grown and made, i.e. a winery that makes only estate-bottled wine. An Azienda Vitivinicole is a winery where grapes are grown and wine is made, but not only from the grapes grown there. © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com3
The B&B Wineries of Ceretto Ceretto owns 3 wineries that produce Barolo or Barbaresco: Bricco Asili in Barbaresco Single-vineyard, estate-bottled Barbaresco. Bricco Rocche in Castiglione Falletto Single-vineyard, estate-bottled Barolo. Monsordo-Bernardina in Alba Non-single-vineyard, non-estate-bottled Barbaresco, Barolo, & Chinato, plus others. Only Bricco Asili and Bricco Roche qualify as Azienda Agricola. © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com4
Other Wines of Monsordo-Bernardina In addition to non-single-vineyard Barolo and Barbaresco, Ceretto also uses their main facility Monsordo-Bernardina to produce Blangé Arneis. Arbarei Riesling. Monsordo Rosso (42% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Nebbiolo). Rossana Dolcetto dAlba. Piana Barbera d'Alba. Bernardina Nebbiolo d'Alba. © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com5
Other Wineries of Ceretto Ceretto has two other estates in the Langhe Hills: I Vignaioli di Santo Stefano Belbo produces Moscato d'Asti. Asti Spumante. Moscato Passito. Ceretto Distillery which makes Grappa Ceretto (from the distillation of the marc of Nebbiolo grapes). Grappa di Moscato (from the distillation of the marc of Moscato grapes) © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com6
Cerettos Bricco Asili Estate in the Barbaresco Region © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com7
The Bricco Asili Estate in Barbaresco Cerettos Bricco Asili Estate in Barbaresco produces only two wines: both single-vineyard Barbarescos: Bernardot (in Treiso). Bricco Asili (in Barbaresco). The last one is a source of confusion. The winery is also called Bricco Asili because it sits just above this Bricco Asili vineyard in Barbaresco. For those familiar with Burgundy, this is no different from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti which makes wine from the Romanée-Conti vineyard as well as other vineyards. Until 2001, Ceretto also produced a Barbaresco Faset (in Barbaresco) at this estate. © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com8

The label on the right is the primary source of confusion about these wines. Here, the name of the estate and the name of the vineyard are Bricco Asili. For Bernardot (above left), the difference is clear once you know the vineyard name.
Cerettos Bricco Rocche Estate in the Barolo Region © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com11
Cerettos Bricco Rocche Barolo Estate Cerettos Bricco Rocche Estate in the village of Castiglione Falletto in the Barolo Region produces only four wines: all single-vineyard Barolos: Brunate (in La Morra). Prapò (in Serralunga d'Alba). Cannubi (in La Morra). (New in 2003.) Bricco Rocche (in Castiglione Falletto). The last one is a source of confusion. The winery is also called Bricco Rocche because it sits just above this Bricco Rocche vineyard. For those familiar with Burgundy, this is no different from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti which makes wine from the Romanée-Conti vineyard as well as other vineyards. © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com12

Azienda Agricola Ceretto Ceretto was among the first to use the term Azienda Agricola on the labels of their estate-bottled wines. As far back as the 1980s, they used "Azienda Agricola Bricco Asili" or "Azienda Agricola Bricco Asili Ceretto" on their estate-bottled Barbarescos. Similarly "Azienda Agricola Bricco Rocche" or "Azienda Agricola Bricco Rocche Ceretto" on their estate-bottled Barolos. Around 2000, they combined these estates into "Azienda Agricola Ceretto though, at the bottom of the label, the Barbarescos show the location of this estate as in Barbaresco, while the Barolos show it as in Castiglione Falletto. © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com15

Cerettos Non-Single-Vineyard Barolo and Barbaresco © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com17
Barolo & Barbaresco of Monsordo-Bernardina Winery Only non-single-vineyard, non-estate Barolo and Barbaresco are produced here: Zonchera Barolo. Asij Barbaresco. Barolo Chinato. In addition to grapes from non-estate vineyards, these wines act as second wines to the estate wines by including lots deemed not of sufficient quality for the single vineyard, estate bottlings of the Bricco Asili and Bricco Rocche wineries. © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com18
B&B of Monsordo-Bernardina © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com19 Proprietary name Asij Proprietary name Zonchera
B&B of Monsordo-Bernardina The names of the non-single-vineyard, non-estate Barolo and Barbaresco are another source of confusion here. The proprietary name Asij for the Barbaresco is easily confused with the famous Barbaresco vineyard Asili. In fact, Asij is Piedmontese dialect for Asili. The Proprietary name Zonchera for their Barolo is less confusing because it is derived from a much less famous Barolo vineyard named Zonchetta which Ceretto has not bottled as a single vineyard wine since the 1970s. © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com20
Chinato of Monsordo-Bernardina © Ken Vastola 2011www.finewinegeek.com21 Barolo Chinato A unique, exotic, spiced wine made by Ceretto and other wineries in Piedmont. It is very different from regular Barolo.
