THE WINE

The Barbaresco DOCG Asili of Ceretto comes from the homonymous Bricco which is the very symbol of the municipality of Barbaresco, able to astonish by finesse and power, elegance and longevity. The grapes of this vine are purified from the first half of the 70's. The wine is of a perfect balance and is capable of aging for at least 20 years.

THE PHILOSOPHY

Our vineyards are cared for according to organic farming principles, which avoids over-use of natural resources, according to a model of sustainable development for nature and for mankind, that can last over time.

The term Organic Farming indicates a cultivation method that allows the use of only natural substances, that are present in nature, excluding the use of synthetic chemical substances (fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides). All our vineyards (160 hectares in total) have been converted, since 2010 to today, into organic farming. A revolutionary choice that has radically changed the management methods of the vineyards, aimed at more respect for the soil, the grapes and mankind. In 2016 we obtained Certification (relating to the 2015 vintage) and the first organic wines have been bottled.

THE COMPANY

The quest of the brothers Bruno and Marcello Ceretto was to select vineyards in the most valuable positions historically. This idea came about during a trip to Burgundy, and would prove the family’s insight and see their Barolo and Barbaresco wines among the most popular in the world. A revolution at the time, for a territory in which the concept of cru was totally unknown, but, above all, a brilliant idea. The most difficult challenge the brothers faced was convincing their father who, as was typical at the time, purchased grapes for the wines he vinified. "You are undertaking a difficult journey, the land has never made anybody rich," he warned, but Bruno and Marcello were convinced about the potential of the land and stubbornly replied, "We believe in the land 100%, the winery is obviously important, but great wines are made with great grapes." And so, they began dreaming of labels bearing the name of the vineyard and also its image: "so whoever drinks that wine can see the vineyard from which it has originated. The vineyard is history, the names of the hills remain, unchanged over time, enhancing the quality and credibility of the wines produced here. You can search out, visit and physically touch a vineyard… always." In 1986, Wine Spectator, perhaps the most influential American magazine in the world of wine, puts the two Langhe brothers on the cover calling them the Barolo Brothers. Bruno and Marcello were less than 50 years old, but they were not overwhelmed by what was an official consecration, to which all aspire, but few can obtain. Even today, they have remained true to themselves, they have not stopped dreaming and fighting for their righteous goal. Meanwhile, the Langa has grown with them and with those who, like them, puts their name to the land where they were born and accompanied them throughout their lives.
