Wine SpectatorElegant, sporting floral, cherry and currant aromas and flavors, shaded by cedar, vanilla and mineral accents. Balanced and fresh, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit, herbs and spice. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2018 through 2030. 2,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe Ceralti 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Alfeo is a blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc that is fermented in cement tanks and is later aged in neutral oak for 12 months. The intent is to allow for more breathing room to the ripe fruit and cherry nuances that stream so freely from the bouquet. In the mouth, the wine is lean and streamlined with dark mineral accents on the close.
