Giovanni Rosso Langhe Nebbiolo 2015

$ 20.25

Davide Rosso has been up-and-coming as a star winemaker in Barolo for years. Now, in his brand-new winery with all the room needed to hold his Slavonian-oak botte and cement tanks for fermentation, he continues to make wines that epitomize elegance and power.  Farming is done as organically as possible, using no artificial chemical treatments. Harvesting is 100% manual, as is pruning and tilling of the soil beneath the vines. Plant growth is allowed between the rows of vines to encourage soil health and diversity in the vineyards.

Winemaking details:

  • 100% Nebbiolo
  • Sustainable farming
  • Fermentation in concrete tanks for 10-15 days
  • Daily pumping over of the wine mass with délestages at half of the period
  • Aged in 50hl neutral oak barrels

Tasting Notes: Aromas of violet and roses, some nice fruits with cherry and raspberry hints. Quite easy to drink, with a fine structure; elegant tannins together with a good freshness.

FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:

Roast quail with sausage stuffing, mushroom risotto, fried polenta with braised leeks and sunchoke, braised pork shank, cannellini stew with prosciutto
