Giovanni Rosso

Burgundy-trained winemaker Davide Rosso leads one of Barolo’s most fascinating wineries. The Rosso family’s Serralunga d’Alba vineyard plots are farmed according to organic and biodynamic practices, with minimal intervention in the cellar. These estate Barbera vines were planted between 1959 and 2008.

In early October, the fruit is hand-harvested; wine is vinified slowly for two weeks in cement tanks with native yeasts, aged in French oak casks for several months, and bottled unfiltered.

On the nose, this wine displays clear aromas of red plums, raspberries, blueberry with delicate wisteria hints. On the palate, it is very easy to drink with vibrant acidity. Recommended pairings include poutine and risotto.

“Owner-winemaker David Rosso runs the 40-acre, family-owned estate in the heart of Serralunga d’Alba with the philosophy that his wines should reflect their origins. The family was growing vines for more than a hundred years when Giovanni Rosso began an estate-bottling program in 1995 exploring 11 separate parcels that include blocks in the prime Barolo vineyards of La Serra, Vigna Rionda and Cerretta. Rosso switched from stainless steel tanks to concrete for his Barolo production and has gone down a natural path with yeasts as well as moving to unfined and unfiltered at bottling. Expect an attractive, fresh, cherry-scented and flavoured red with savoury, earthy undertones streaked with dried herbs and a classic hint of toasted almonds. The freshness masks some of its structure but you can be sure this will age handsomely for a decade or more. A very food-friendly red; think mushroom dishes, beef pastas, and sausages. Real wine at a fair price.” Anthony Gismondi on Giovanni Rosso Barbera, April 2018
