In the 1970s Ceretto evolved from an old-style merchant house into a modern one owning most of its grape sources. Of the many fabulous sites, the most famous perhaps is the Bricco Asili cru, (confusingly nearly all the Barbarescos produced carry this name) but it is in Barolo’s Bricco Rocche (which adjoins Villero in Castiglione Falletto), Prapò and Brunate that the brothers Ceretto usually have their top wines. Each property is overseen from the impressive headquarters at the La Bernadina estate where Riesling (Arbarei), is vinified. New oak is used in all the top wines, which when on form are supple, intense and characterful.
