Unpeccable in the nose, elegant and neat; craft jams, wild herbs, chocolate. Flavors are powerful and yet soft as well as its tannins; embracing sensation with a good fruit imprint, long lasting finish. Pairs well with long cooking red meats, oustanding with truffled pheasant.

Rose, red-berry, camphor and dark-spice aromas slowly emerge in the glass. Showing Serralunga's hallmark of firm structure and finesse, the full-bodied, youthfully tense palate delivers juicy red cherry, raspberry compote, dried mint and licorice set against a backbone of noble tannins. Bright acidity keeps it impeccably balanced. Drink 2026-2056.

The 2016 Barolo Cerretta is another impressive wine from Davide Rosso. Ample and resonant in the glass, with terrific freshness, the Cerretta captures all the best the vintage has to offer. Sweet red berry fruit, blood orange, cinnamon, wild flowers and mint emerge from the glass, but only with some reluctance. Time really brings out the wine's textural depth nicely. I would give the 2016 a few years in bottle.

The Giovanni Rosso 2016 Barolo Cerretta is a tight, focused and high-energy expression of Nebbiolo. Red and purple fruit aromas of cassis, dried cranberry and cherry provide pretty highlights, but ample space is given to those equally pretty aromas of licorice, campfire ash and candied orange peel that so deftly play supporting roles. To the palate, this is a glossy, polished wine with enough tannic kick to carry it forward for another 10 or 20 years of cellar aging.

Fragrant and rich, with a core of strawberry, cherry, floral, mint and hay flavors plying the solidly built frame. The spine of acidity and tannins shuts down the finish, yet the balance is there. Long and satisfying. Best from 2023 through 2040. 800 cases made, 75 cases imported.
