Good menthol, spice and young fruit on the nose. Depth and ripe richness, with powdery tannins on the palate. Still so youthful, fresh & enjoyable, but more complexity, maturity and deeper enjoyment to follow.
Still young and wrapped up tight, the fruit comes out with a couple hour decant and some rich food to cut the tannin (pork shoulder braised with kale over polenta). Lovely and drinkable, everything you want in a Barolo, if not the most complex bottle.
Decanted two hours which helped tremendously. Broadened into a fairly generous wine with enough acid to carry the flavors through a medium length finish. Not the most complex Barolo, but very lovely nonetheless.

(Giovanni Rosso Ceretta) Lovely perfumes of red roses, Queen Anne cherry, and strawberry jam jump out of the glass. Medium-full with very good concentration, this Rosso offers sleek acidity, graceful tannins, subtle wood notes, and a lengthy, elegant finish. A bit atypical for Serralunga, it is stylish and approachable on release, but will still be at its best in 15-20 years. Appellation: Serralunga d'Alba
