Press & Reviews
- Score: 96 Vintage 2016 Wine EnthusiastIris, woodland-berry and pine forest aromas shape the nose. On the focused, vibrant palate, mint and star anise notes accent a core juicy Marasca cherry. Taut polished tannis and bright acidity provide balance and a firm lithe structure. Shelf Talker
- Score: 90 Vintage 2015 Wine SpectatorRound and balanced, with expressive plum, cherry, tar, iron and tobacco flavors. Taut, ending with dusty tannins wrapped around fruit and earth notes. Best from 2022 through 2036. 1,250 cases made, 100 cases imported. Shelf Talker
- Score: 91 Vintage 2014 Wine Advocate“Starting with a slightly heavier footprint, the 2014 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d’Alba is a tightly knit wine that is packed carefully with wild berry, cassis and dried cranberry aromas. The fiber of the wine is slightly more robust compared to the annata 2014 Barolo that I tasted in this same flight. These wines by Giovanni Rosso are distinguished by the smooth consistency of their tannins.” Shelf Talker Full Review
