The Cerretta is the newest addition to Elio Altare‰Ûªs lineup and was first produced in 2005. Located in Serralunga, the vineyard plays host to some of Barlo‰Ûªs greatest names, including Giacomo Conterno.

Just 500 cases are made each year. Altare‰Ûªs vines enjoy southern exposure and are grown mostly in clay. Yields average about 5 tons per hectare. Maceration is relatively short at 4 to 5 days, but rotary fermenters bring depth and structure. The Cerretta is aged for two years in French barriques.
