Giovanni Rosso Barolo DOCG Cerretta 2008, Italy

Giovanni Rosso Barolo DOCG Cerretta 2008Guest writer Chek Wong, associate member of the Institute of Wines and Spirits, contributed his thoughts on a number of Italian Barolos from Giovanni Rosso writing on Singapore’s Local Nose.

The Giovanni Rosso winery is located in the village of Serralunga d’Alba in north west Italy where owner and winemaker Davide Rosso typically bottles two single-vineyard wines from his vineyards in Ceretta and La Serra.

Of this 2008 vintage he said: “The Cerretta vineyard has a thicket of trees at its base, which acts as a windbreak. It is located 360m above sea level, with calcareous clay or marl soils, producing wines that Davide describes as feminine. Aged in 25 hl Fontainebleau oak for 36 months.

“The 08′ has a medium ruby robe with an orange rim (characteristic of Nebbiolo), showing notes of balsamic and violets on the nose. The palate has small red berries with dense, sinewy tannins. Alcohol is noticeable but integrated. An extraordinary length. Feminine perhaps, but more G.I. Jane than Anne Hathaway.”
