Giovanni Rosso Barolo Serralunga 2013 (750ml/12)
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
Dark tones with hints of cocoa and chocolate. Raspberry, plum and black pepper on the palate with a savoury, juicy finish.
Wine Spectator“Packed with sweet strawberry and cherry flavors, this red also deals leather, tobacco and tar notes from a well-structured deck. Tightens up considerably on the finish, a good sign for future development.” - Bruce Sanderson, December 2017
Vinous Media"Davide Rosso has done a terrific job in taming the firm Serralunga tannins in his 2013 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba, a wine that expresses the personality of the village, but in a style that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. The 2013 is lifted and gracious. Above all else, the Serralunga is a wine that speaks to balance and harmony above all else, while downplaying some of the typical Serralunga heft, which is fine for a Barolo meant to be enjoyed upon release. Hints of herb, licorice and dried flowers add the closing shades of nuance." - Antonio Galloni, August 2017
