Notes of violet and roses, some nice fruits with cherry and raspberry hints. The palate is quite easy to drink, with a fine structure; elegant tannins together with a good freshness.
Perfect for any situation, it can be wonderfully enjoyed from a simple rural picnic to the most silver screened aperitif; can easily stand important dishes as well.
The Giovanni Rosso estate makes some very pretty wines from the Serralunga d’Alba subzone in the Barolo appellation. This classic wine, the 2015 Barolo, provides a good introduction to the distinct taste profile shared by the two single-vineyard wines, Cerretta and Serra, also reviewed here. However, this wine hails from the warm and sunny 2015 vintage and supplies a greater kick of soft cherry fruit and rich concentration when compared to the more streamlined, long-term 2016 vintage. Those dark primary fruit aromas, the acidity and the tannic imprint are all beautifully measured to the enhanced intensity of this pretty and well-priced 2015 Barolo. RB-93
Dried oranges, rose petals, citrus and fresh herbs. Medium to full body, grainy tannins and a spice-driven, flavorful finish. Drink in 2021. JS-93
