Zonchera is the local dialect name for the Zonchetta vineyard, located just south of La Morra in Barolo. Riccardo Ceretto preferred this traditional name for his first Barolo. This wine is aged in two parts, first for 12 months in barriques, and then for another 12 months in large French oak barrels.
This is a classic Barolo – light garnet in color with Barolo’s quintessential aromas of roses, tart cherries, and hints of truffles. Ceretto’s Zonchera is extraordinarily approachable now, but it will continue to reward the patient wine drinker as it evolves over the course of several years.
Pair this wine with red meats, bolognese style pasta, or roasted vegetagles. Great with our Lasagne alla Bolognese, Grilled Vegetable Rustici or Wild Boar alla Cacciatora
