Giovanni Rosso Barolo Serra 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
A vivid, powerful nose of wild berries, coffee, licorice and mint. Savory, gamey notes on the palate with an intriguingly long finish featuring suggestions of balsamic.
Vinous Media"The 2013 Barolo La Serra is laced with the essence of kirsch, spice, new leather, tobacco, licorice and menthol. High-toned and aromatically expressive the La Serra will drink well with minimal cellaring because of its soft, mid-weight structure. Beams of tannin extend the finish nicely. If opened young, the 2013 needs a few hours of air for the slightly volatile notes in the bouquet to dissipate. Overall, the 2013 is a bit eccentric, but it is well done." - Antonio Galloni, August 2017
