Giovanni Rosso Barolo Serra 2014
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Hay and camphor aromas shade the core of cherry and berry fruit, along with loam, leather, tobacco and juniper accents. This is racy and tense, with energy and balance, followed by a long, resonant finish. Needs time. Best from 2023 through 2043. 483 cases made, 150 cases imported. - BS
From Serralunga d'Alba, the 2014 Barolo Serra is distinguished by extra depth and tightness, especially when you consider those beautifully managed tannins. The mouthfeel is lean and crisp, but despite the weaker concentration and fiber of the vintage, this wine does not lack structure or backbone.
