2001 Ceretto Barbaresco Bricco Asili Bernadot

($67) Medium red. Strawberry, rose petal and oak scents on the nose. Supple, juicy and perfumed, with spicy flavors of red cherry and tart red berries complicated by a note of caramel from the oak. Densely packed and youthfully wound-up; currently showing a bit more texture than complexity. Finishes with dusty tannins and very good length.


2001 Ceretto Barbaresco Bricco Asili Bricco Asili

($125) Full red, deeper than the Bernadot but not brighter. Spicy red fruits, flowers and exotic spices on the nose. Tight, juicy and penetrating, with a strong mineral quality. Denser but even more backward than the Bernadot. Finishes with firm but fine tannins and excellent length. This wears its oak gracefully.


2000 Ceretto Bricco Rocche Barolo Prapo

($72) Medium red. Somewhat autumnal aromas of bonfire, smoky oak and spices. Juicy, spicy and firm, with less density and flesh than this producer's other 2000 Barolos. The finish here is a bit dustier and drier, with strong spicy oak showing today.


2000 Ceretto Bricco Rocche Barolo Brunate

($72) Medium red. Expressive aromas of redcurrant, cherry, iron, dried rose and woodsmoke; oakier today than the Bricco Rocche Bricco Rocche. Then floral and high-pitched, with juicy flavors of redcurrant, strawberry, mocha and rose petal. Very suave if rather oaky Barolo. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and notes of tobacco leaf and underbrush.


2000 Ceretto Barolo Bricco Rocche Bricco Rocche

($199) Medium red. Complex, scented nose of strawberry, dried rose petal, tobacco and spicy oak. Penetrating, firm-edged flavors of strawberry, minerals, licorice and rose petal. Juicy and impressively intense, with excellent energy in the mouth; a bit less pliant today than the Brunate. Finishes vibrant and long, with building tannins and a bit of youthful austerity. Fresh and backward for the vintage. (Clicquot, Inc., New York NY
