When in doubt, pull your Baby Barolo out! We've said it before and we'll say it again: Baby Barolos may be the best value wines in Piedmont. We have easily put this particular Langhe Nebbiolo in over 100 customers' hands and each has come back for more. With feedback like: "delicious, fabulous, what was that great wine I got last time? I'll take a case." This Baby Barolo over-delivers vintage after vintage.
Often referred to as "Baby Barolos," Langhe Rosso require less time in bottle and wood before release (unlike Barolos which require around 3 years). This is what Piedmontese winemakers enjoy when they are waiting for their big-boy Barolos to age.
What sets Giovanni Rosso's Langhe apart from the others is that the vineyards used in this bottling are the exact same vineyards and grapes that go into the winery's flagship Barolo, without the aging. Because of this, you get so much of the Barolo experience in a wine that doesn't need 10 years of cellaring at a mind blowing 25 bucks.
This extraordinary wine boasts loads of cherry and raspberry fruit, well-integrated sweet, dry tannin and zesty acidity that cleans the palate and keeps the wine lively. Delicately spiced, it has aromas of violets and rose petals; it has the weight of a Pommard and the long expressive finish of a fine Barolo.
As an added bonus, Giovanni Rosso practices organic viticulture and hand harvesting. The craftsmanship of this every-night red far exceeds its price.
Pair with hard cheeses and hearty pasta dishes. A rare find indeed, you can also enjoy this wonderful wine with your favorite meat sauce, truffle pasta - and the perfect pairing, veal milanese. Enjoy!
