Varietal Nebbiolo
Region Italy: Piedmont
Notes "A rich version, whose fleshy texture envelops cherry, plum, licorice, earth and mint flavors. Balanced, with civilized tannins and a lingering finish that echoes the plum and spice flavors, adding a mineral element. Best from 2025 through 2045. 1,450 cases made, 125 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)

Additional Notes

"Aromas of violet, iris, camphor and woodland berries emerge from the glass. On the linear, structured palate, tightly wound, fine-grained tannins support wild strawberry, blood orange and star anise before an almost salty mineral finish. Fresh acidity keeps it well-balanced. Drink 2025–2037." (Wine Enthusiast) "The Giovanni Rosso 2017 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba shows the true grit and balanced power of this celebrated village. The wine sits pretty in the glass with a dark garnet hue and faint touches of red brick. Dried blackberry and cassis segue to earthy tones, rusty metal, tea leaf and dried orange peel. Those reddish mineral tones follow until the end, giving more structure and power to this hot-vintage Barolo." (Wine Advocate)
