This wine takes its name from the prestigious Prapò vineyard which was one of the first properties owned by the Ceretto family in Barolo. This vineyard has one of the best exposures on the eastern slopes of Serralunga d'Alba, a world-renowned commune within Barolo.
Following a fermentation in stainless steel tanks, which is induced by native yeasts, the wine is aged for a period of 12 months in 300L French oak barrels (50% new; 50% second passage). The wine is then transferred to very large oak casks where it continues to refine before bottling.
Garnet in color with ruby red highlights, the wine has an expressive nose with aromas of red cherries, red plums, dried rose petals, sweet spices, and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is vibrant and harmonious with refreshing acidity balanced by firm, ripe tannins. Red fruits mingle with lightly perfumed floral flavors leading to a long, impressive finish.
Pair this wine with pan-seared steaks, duxelles, Beef Wellington, and grilled meats such as lamb, pork or beef.
