Giovanni Rosso Barolo Cerretta 2013 (750ml/6)
About Giovanni Rosso
Back in Massanois’ earliest days, we represented a little known Barolo producer from Serralunga named Giovanni Rosso, which was and is run by charismatic owner and winemaker Davide Rosso. We are proud and honored to welcome Davide and his sublime wines back to the portfolio.
Davide has been up-and-coming as a star winemaker in Barolo for years. If you ask anyone in the region about him, the word “talented” comes up again and again. Now, in his brand-new winery with all the room needed ...New York, New Jersey, California, Massanois Imports
Precise and elegant on the nose, with powerful notes of raspberry jam, wild herbs and cocoa. An intense Barolo with well-integrated tannins and a long, savory finish.
Wine Spectator"Cherry, strawberry, rose and spice flavors are augmented by tobacco and iron notes in this elegant, detailed red. The aromatic and sweet fruit elements are deftly matched by refined, ripe tannins. Terrific length." - Bruce Sanderson
Vinous Media"Rosso's 2013 Barolo Cerretta shows the intensity and breadth this site is capable of. Dark red cherry, plum, menthol and spice all open up in the glass, buffered by big tannins that give the wine its distinctive shape. Powerful and driving in style, the 2012 needs at least a few years in bottle to be at its best."
-- Antonio Galloni, August 2017
