Schiavenza – Barolo Cerretta – 2018
Cerretta is one of the most mentioned vineyards in Serralunga. The Schiavenza winery owns the highest part, called bricco, with a southeastern exposure and limestone loamy soils, where they give the Nebbiolo slightly finer and less direct tannins than other mentions in the area. In this case all winemaking and aging took place for 3 years in large oak barrels. A Barolo with great texture, but with silkier aromas and tannins.

Here in Serralunga d’Alba, which has always been considered one of the pillars of the Barolo appellation, is the birthplace of the Schiavenza winery, which for over seventy years has been giving us wines of great structure, complexity and closely linked to the territory from which they come.
The style is super traditional, in the vineyard the yields are low,the work maniacal in search of continuous perfection, in the winery the same work, still carrying out the fermentations in wood and aging in large oak barrels. The winery manages just under 10 hectares with a total production of 50000 bottles divided between Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Barolo. In particular, the winery pays attention to the production of a few limited bottles of Barolo, subdivided in different vineyards all located in Serralunga, but respecting, indeed enhancing the peculiarity that each exposure and soil can give. In a nutshell, this is one of the smallest and most genuine realities, still trying to preserve the real Langa traditions and winemaking methods, trying to produce real, representative wines without being scared of old scool style or too hard tannins. If you want to drink real Barolos, this producer is one of the best examples.
