THE WINERY

Giovanni Rosso

We are a small, family-owned producer in the heart of the Barolo commune of Serralunga Alba. We make only red wines, and our passion is for Barolo and its great grape, Nebbiolo. Since the 1890's the Rosso family has farmed vineyards in Serralunga Alba, notably the Crus of Cerretta, La Serra, Broglio, Meriame, Sorano, Costa Bella, Lirano & Damiano. During the early 1980's Giovanni Rosso restructured the vineyards with the aim of growing the best fruit. Giovanni's son, Davide, studied Oenology and gained invaluable experience in France.In 2001 Davide, then 27 years old, took charge of the vinification & affinamento/elevage of the wines with one goal in mind: Wine should be a perfect copy of its terroir in this case from the slopes of Serralunga d'Alba, among the finest soils in the world. The Giovanni Rosso cantina (winery) is located in the hamlet of Baudana, just a couple of kilometres north of Serralunga d'Alba village. A traditional family cascina, or farmhouse, it houses the fermentation, aging, bottling and labeling facilities as well as the offices.
