 If you haven’t tried the wines by Davide Rosso, it’s time to say pia cere and hold out your glass. 



Organic leaning cultivation, native yeasts and a focus on reflecting the terroir shaped this 100% Nebbiolo Barolo by a winemaker to watch. The Wine Spectator describes “Cherry, strawberry, rose and spice flavors are augmented by tobacco and iron notes in this elegant, detailed red. The aromatic and sweet fruit elements are deftly matched by refined, ripe tannins. Terrific length.” An age-worthy wine that will shine until 2035, Barolo lovers should jump at the chance to snap up a case for the long haul. 

The young winemaker Davide Rosso is an Italian star for the natural, terroir-driven Barolos and reds he’s making at his family winery in Serralunga d’Alba. Davide was just 27 when he started running the winery named for his father, Giovanni. The family has grown grapes since the 1890s, and now Davide concentrates on making wines from cru vineyards, such as the Cerretta, driven by the philosophy that “wine should be a perfect copy of its terroir.”Giovanni Rosso's wines are made in very small quantities and difficult to find outside Italy. Just 100 cases of this wine were imported to the U.S., so don't miss this opportunity to try this Barolo.
