CERETTO Barbera d’Alba, Piedmont D.O.C., Italy

With age, its ruby-red color takes on elegant garnet tinges, while its characteristic, vinous nose assumes a finesse that recalls hints of ripe fruits. Structure and consistency exalt the wine's fine body. A lively wine, pleasant with the aromas of a classic Piedmontese Barbera.

傑樂托酒莊 Ceretto Aziende Vitivinicole s.r.l.
創立於1930s年代，現由Ceretto家族第三代接手經營的Aziende Vinicole Ceretto酒廠，位於義大利西北邊的知名葡萄酒產區Piedmont。旗下擁有七座獨立的葡萄酒莊園以及一間蒸餾酒廠，總共擁有超過120公頃的葡萄園面積。1977年Ceretto與兩位合作夥伴成立I Vignaioli di Santo Stefano酒廠，由Ceretto負責技術指導和銷售；這幾位酒農擁有當地最好的葡萄園，且近年來一直有優良的酒農加入行列。Ceretto並且不斷導入先進的釀造技術以提升產品品質。在這生產的產品有Moscato d’Asti白酒、Moscato Passito甜白酒和Asti Spumante氣泡酒；由於這些Moscato葡萄酒的品質相當優良，因此Ceretto被評為Asti的Moscato葡萄酒最好的品牌之一。
在密閉溫控不銹鋼槽中進行發酵，因此發酵產生的二氧化碳氣泡仍保留在酒中；一旦酒精濃度達到酒廠所要的標準，會以急速降溫的方式中止發酵程序，此時仍有一些殘餘糖分在酒中，賦予這款酒鮮活的甜味。這是Ceretto呈獻給世人的 “La Dolce Vita(the sweet life)”！
Ceretto is one of Piemonte's major estates, though perhaps the term estate isn't quite adequate. It was founded in the 1930s by Riccardo Ceretto, who passed the torch to his sons Bruno and Marcello in the 1960s. They expanded Riccardo's Casa Vinicola Ceretto into Ceretto Aziende Vitinvincole s.r.l., a collection of small wineries that farm some of the best plots of land in the Barolo and Barbaresco production zones, and also added holdings in other especially good areas, such as Castellinaldo for Arneis. With an almost metaphorical return to their origins, in 1976 the Ceretto brothers - together with two partners (Sergio Santi and the brothers Gianpiero and Andrea Scavino) - founded I Vignaioli di Santo Stefano in the village where their father, Riccardo, was born.The farm works 20 acres of its own land, as well as the San Maurizio estate leased from Count Carlo Vittorio Incisa Beccaria, a prestigious hillside area of approximately 80 acres in Santo Stefano Belbo.Around 160,000 bottles of Moscato d’Asti, 20,000 of Asti, and 5,000 of Moscato Passito are produced here on average each year.Limited pruning, balanced manuring, thinning of the bunches, and grading of the grapes during the harvest are the cornerstones on which the tending of the vineyards is based, while rackings, clarifications and filtrations reduced to the absolute minimum are the fundamental steps in the winery that guarantee to bring out the aromatic properties of the grapes.
In the Langhe region, every hill has its own history and its own image. The Ceretto Aziende Vitivinicole has been able to select the best crus and create a group of small wineries that produce a considerable number of bottles without sacrificing quality. Direct, in-house wine-making that combines tradition and innovation is the cornerstone of the Cerettos' corporate philosophy. And as important as investment in technology and property has been investment in human resources, so the azienda has trained a group of talented young professionals and given them a significant degree of autonomy and responsibility.
