Giovanni Rosso Nebbiolo Langhe Rosso 2018

Piedmont, ItalyWinemaker Davide Rosso leads the family winery based in Serralunga d'Alba and, for my money, is one of the most talented winemakers in Piemonte. A mix of organically and biodynamically grown fruit processed with minimal intervention results in a stunning Langhe Nebbiolo. In my forty years of tasting, it is hard to think of a better nebbiolo that isn't a cru Barolo. Rosso is all about the details, as evidenced by a red native fermented in cement and aged in 50hl French casks, leaving it lively and fragrant from its plummy, rose petal nose to its tarry, savoury, earthy raspberry palate. It spills across the palate as a balanced, fresh wine with a stylish ending. The ultimate dinner wine. Real wine.Tasted: 19 October 2021Tasted by: Prices:
