Giovanni Rosso Barolo del Comune di Serralunga DOCG 2018

Wonderful aroma of violet and roses with hints of cherries and raspberries. Easy to drink with a fine structure and elegant tannins and freshness.

100% Nebbiolo. Harvested from middle of October. The fermentation lasts some 25 days according to the vintage with daily pumping over of the wine mass with délestages at half of the period (fermentation in concrete tanks). The aging is conducted in 50hl large barrels of French oak (from 18 to 36 months according to the vintage and the vineyard of provenience).

Perfect for any situation, it can be enjoyed during a simple picnic or even as an aperitif. This bottle can be paired easily with dishes, along them to standout.
