Giovanni Rosso is a family-owned estate who have been growing grapes in the Comune of Serralunga d'Alba since the 1890's, including the Crus of Cerretta and Serra. During the 1980's, Giovanni Rosso restructured the vineyards with the aim of producing the best possible wines, and in 2001, Giovanni's son Davide took charge of winemaking, following his own mantra "wine should be a perfect copy of its terroir".

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 Fontainebleau Forest oak from 18 to 36 months according to the vintage and the vineyard of provenience.

Exudes inviting aromas of berry fruit, floral and soy that segue to cherry, plum, earth and spice flavors allied to a sumptuous texture. This has a matrix of tannins for support and expands on the complex finish. Best from 2025 through 2042. - Bruce Sanderson, winespectator.com, 31 August, 2022, 93 Points
