    Ageing is in 5,000-litre casks for this Langhe Nebbiolo. A 2018, the colour is garnet with a little amber on the rim and the nose is firm and fairly ungiving at this stage, some small red fruits, raspberry freshness. It is firm and just a touch lean on the palate at this stage, but beyond that the purity of the fruit is very fine, and the balance and structure of the wine good, plentiful cherry acidity and fine tannins. This could loosen up a little over a year or two in bottle. Tom Cannavan

    Aromas of cherry, strawberry and white pepper announce this elegant red, picking up leather and tobacco flavours on the palate. The tannins leave an astringent feel. Drink now through 2022. Bruce Sanderson

    “The 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo by Giovanni Rosso is a fresh and easy-going red wine with extremely food-friendly drinking appeal. You get the fresh acidity, the balanced alcohol and the tannic crunchiness to cut though oven-roasted lasagna layered with melted.” Monica Larner
