Barolo Cerretta Magnum wooden box 2013 Giovanni Rosso

Variety: Nebbiolo 100%

Barolo from a single vineyard, Cerretta in the municipality of Serralunga d’Alba.

Garnet red color, not intense typical of Nebbioli, with light orange veins.

The nose has aromas of red fruit and violet. Swirling the wine in the glass followed by those of withered rose petals of cherry and black cherry. Followed by different spices and aromas such as white pepper, cinchona and rhubarb. Perfumes show class, and show us a truly bright future.

On the palate it tells us of a splendid shape and enviable substance. Serralunga’s Terroir marks the structure of a wine that has a very long growth prospect. The hardnesses are pleasantly marked, just as the softnesses grant warmth and creaminess. The aromas that reach the nasal receptors coming up from the throat are of flowers and spices. Finish is very persistent.

Cerretta is one of the best Crus of the whole Barolo appellation, because it can give structured wines, but also creamy. Giovanni Rosso‘s interpretation is superlative.

The fermentation is carried out in cement tanks for an average period of about 28 days with daily pumping over and delestage, carried out around the middle of the fermentation period. Delestage is a technique used to uniformly extract the compounds that influence the sensory characteristics, such as the chemical-physical ones of wine. In particular, the délestage consists in emptying the liquid part from the concrete tank, and pouring it into a second container, where it remains for one or two hours. The solid part, skins and seeds, rests on the bottom of the tank. After the established period, the liquid is pumped into the concrete tank where the solid part was left, taking care not to break up the skins excessively, and fermentation is finished.

Aging in 25 and 50 hl French oak barrels from the Fontainebleau Forest, for a period ranging from 18 to 36 months depending on the vintage.

The rest of the time to reach the 4 years provided for by the specification is spent in the bottle.
