Az Agr Giovanni Rosso is a family-owned estate who have been growing grapes in the Comune of Serralunga d'Alba since the 1890's, including the Crus of Cerretta and Serra. During the 1980's, Giovanni Rosso restructured the vineyards with the aim of producing the best possible wines, and in 2001, Giovanni's son Davide took charge of winemaking, following his own mantra "wine should be a perfect copy of its terroir".
Lavish sweet spice and rosy perfume, red berries and cherry, almond paste and mint. Full-bodied, but fresh, succulence of red fruit and almond, almost sweet, but firm chalk dust tannin, inner perfume of flowers and bergamot tea, maybe liquorice root, and a very long finish that makes you think of warm bricks and stony things. Champion wine of substance and tannic sustenance. So very very good. Tasted: Jul 2020; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $165; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2024-2038+; Rated: 96 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
