Giovanni Rosso Barolo Cerretta 2018

Giovanni Rosso Barolo Cerretta has a bright garnet appearance. Concentrated nose of violets, roses and cherry fruit with notes of coffee. The full-bodied palate has silky tannins, incredible complexity and an undeniable freshness. Bright red fruit flavours combine with savoury, earthy layers to create a complete structure. 

Ageing potential: Keep until 2033!

100% Nebbiolo. The fruit for this wine comes from Giovanni Rosso's Ceretta Bric vineyard in the northern part of the commune Serralunga d'Alba, which is located in the heart of Barolo. The vineyard is east and southeast facing, sits at an average altitude of 750 metres, and is composed of lava sand soils.

ermentation lasts up to 25 days according to the vintage with daily pumping over of the wine mass with délestages halfway (fermentation in concrete tanks). The wine ages for 18–36 months in 25 or 50HL Fontainebleau Forest oak barrels.





Iris, hay, woodland berry and botanical herb aromas come to the forefront on this fragrant, delicious red. The focused, vibrant palate picks up where the nose leaves off, delivering juicy Morello cherry, strawberry compote, star anise and tobacco framed in tightly wound, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2026–2033.


 Very open, it recalls withered red flowers and lots of black cherries in alcohol. Medium body, perfectly blended and a creamy and really juicy finish that begs to return to the glass. A multifaceted wine that plays on the razor's edge with volatile acidity. Drink now or get old.
