Product Profile Sheet 750ml
Azienda Agricola Giovanni Rosso is a family-owned 12 hectare estate located in Serralunga d’Alba, in the eastern side of Barolo. The family have owned their vineyards since the end of the 19th century, but have only been making wines under their own label since 1995.
Talented young-ish winegrower Davide Rosso is at the helm. He has experience working in Burgundy with the likes of Domaine Jean Grivot and Denis Mortet, and takes a refreshingly natural approach is taken in both the vineyard and winery. Although there is no certification, the seven parcels of vines are managed organically with no pesticides or herbicides. They cover some special terroirs, including the limestone-rich La Serra and clay-rich Cerreta.
“The 2008 Barolo Cerretta is all about textural depth and finesse. Layers of fruit caress the palate in this mid-weight, easygoing Barolo. Crushed flowers, tobacco and dried cherries linger on the pointed finish. This is a relatively soft, open, accessible Barolo for the year.” – Antonio Galloni, October 2012
