Description

Giovanni Rosso is a family-owned winery located in the Serralunga d’Alba DOCG of Barolo, Italy. The Rosso family have owned vineyards and/or grown grapes since the 1890s but began producing and bottling wine under the Giovanni Rosso label in 1995. In the early 1980’s, Giovanni Rosso (second generation) replanted the vines in the family’s plots located in Cerretta, La Serra, Broglio, Meriame, Sorano, Costa Bella, Lirano and Damiano. They recently bought two acres of 60+ year old vines in the heart of the legendary Vigna Rionda, bringing the total acreage under vine to 29 acres. Most of the vineyards are planted on prime Serralunga marl, clay and sandstone soils at 1,410 feet, notably those on the steep, limestone-rich La Serra and deeper clay-rich Cerretta and the vines are farmed organically. In 2001, Giovanni’s son, Davide took over vinification and elevage of the wines. He uses traditional winemaking techniques – month-long wild yeast alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in small cement vats without temperature control, remontage, delestage and daily punch downs of the cap. The wines age 36 months in large French botte made from oak grown in Fontainebleau. Davide worked closely with his father until his death in 2009 and continues to strive to make wines that are, “A perfect copy of their terroir”.

Colour: Garnet-Red, concentrated and bright Bouquet: Classic Serralunga aromas of violet and rose, with black fruit characteristics and hints of coffee and liquorice Taste: Made to highlight the classic qualities of Serralunga fruit, this wine shows forest fruit flavours, earthy overtones, a silky mouthfeel and fine tannins, combined with a long finish
