    Giovanni Rosso

    About Giovanni Rosso

    We are a small, family-owned producer in the heart of the Barolo commune of Serralunga d'Alba. We make predominantly red wines, and our passion is for Barolo and its great grape, Nebbiolo. Since the 1890's the Rosso family has farmed vineyards in Serralunga d'Alba, notably the Crus of Cerretta, La Serra, Broglio, Meriame, Sorano, Costa Bella, Lirano & Damiano. During the early 1980's Giovanni Rosso restructured the vineyards with the aim of growing the best fruit.

    Giovanni's son, Davide, studied Oenology and gained invaluable experience in France. In 2001 Davide, then 27 years old, took charge of the vinification & affinamento/elevage of the wines with one goal in mind: "Wine should be a perfect copy of its terroir"... in this case from the slopes of Serralunga d'Alba, among the finest soils in the world.

    Davide took on a side project in May 2016 with the purchase of the Etna estate near the village Solicchiata of Castiglione di Sicilia. The farm rises a few kilometers before Passopisciaro down to Montedolce, a small inactive crater that gives the name to the Contrada. We are in the northeast side of the volcano, a perfectly suited area for the production of red wines. The new holdings extend for fourteen hectares in one single plot among which just something more than six hectares are dedicated to viticulture: 1.2 ha for the whites and 5.5 ha for the reds (Carricante and Nerello Mascalese with small percentages of other local grape varieties, as the tradition requires). The training system has been renamed as "candelabro".

    Viniculture

    In terms of viticulture, we farm as organically as possible, using no artificial chemical treatments such as fertilizers, insecticides or weed-killers. Harvesting is 100% manual, as is pruning and tilling of the soil beneath the vines. Green harvesting is carried out as necessary and we allow plant growth between the rows of vines to encourage soil health and diversity in the vineyards.

    The type of soil, altitude, exposure (the terroir) varies from one Cru to another; something that must be respected when working the vineyards. This work should also reflect the different weather patterns experienced each vintage. Savoir-faire learnt daily over the past 100 years enables us to understand perfectly the subtleties of each Cru.

    Giovanni Rosso Barolo Cerretta 2013 (6x75cl)
    Inc. VAT: £690.47
    2013

    Giovanni Rosso Barolo Cerretta 2013 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (91)

    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 2013 needs at least a few years in bottle to be at its best.

    2015

    Giovanni Rosso Barolo Cerretta 2015 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93+)

    The 2015 Barolo Cerretta is a dark, potent wine that captures all the brooding, virile intensity that is so typical of Serralunga. A blast of dark cherry, tobacco, smoke, licorice, grilled herbs, menthol and pine punctuates this decidedly structured, imposing Barolo. Give the 2015 a few years to come into its own. The 2015 is promising.

    Giovanni Rosso Barolo Cerretta 2017 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (94)

    The 2017 Barolo Cerretta is a dark, ample wine. Black cherry, smoke, leather, licorice and incense lend gravitas to this decidedly brooding, potent Barolo. I would give the 2017 at least a few years in bottle, as the tannins are pretty imposing today.

    Giovanni Rosso Barolo Cerretta 2018 (6x75cl)

    Decanter (95)

    New to the Place de Bordeaux this year. Sweet baked fruit and floral scents on the nose, so expressive and nuanced - it smells divine. Supple, bright and vibrant - you get the mix of crushed velvet tannins giving a mouthfilling texture then the brightness and lift from the red fruit and touches of dryness from the minerality. Excellent definition and character here, supremely balanced and full of life. Just a pleasure to drink. The cleanness / precision comes across more than anything - so focussed. A soft, silky expression with lovely poise on show. It's not shouting but calmly displaying its excellent qualities. Fermentation 25 days in contact with the skins in concrete tanks.

    Giovanni Rosso Etna Rosso 2018 (6x75cl)

    Jane Anson Inside Bordeaux (94)

    Pale but vibrant ruby in colour, from 6.5ha of 45 year old vines on the northern slopes of Etna at 750m. So fragrant it’s crazy, soft raspberry and cranberry fruits, this is far more intense on the nose than you expect from the colour. Very approachable, easy to enjoy, fragrant with rolling waves of summer fruits, orange peel and earthy dried herbs. No need to wait to drink this, although you feel gentle tannins guiding your way through the palate. Easy to recommend this wine from Davide Rosse (originally from Piedmont, and you can see something of the delicacy of nebbiolo here, the whisper of a variety that specialises in gentle persuasion). Aged in an array of differently sized French oak barrels and casks. Got to be the best value wine of the September Releases.

    Giovanni Rosso Etna Rosso 2019 (6x75cl)

    Jane Anson Inside Bordeaux (95)

    Beautiful jewel-like ruby colour, vibrant and expressive, this is just so moreish, with a beautiful grip that holds the sour cherry and fresh raspberry fruits in place. Gentle tannins also, with a subtle intensity. Excellent quality, this is one to shout about and share with friends. A perfect wine for the heat of summer, it has sweetness on the nose but finishes extremely dry with a refreshing signoff. Got to be the best value wine in the September Releases, and shows just what an exciting category Etna Rosso is right now. A 6.5ha estate on the northern slopes of Etna sat at 750m, winemaker Andrea Delpiano is based in Piedmont, but is in Sicily every month. A must buy.
