Description

Gigi Rosso winery sits in Castiglione Falletto, in the heart of Barolo land. It carries the name of its founder Gigi, one of Barolo’s and Langhe pioneers. The next generation, Maurizio and his son Andreas are now managing Gigi Rosso winery. The passage to the second and third generation brings energy and new ideas to the business. As Gigi expressed in his own words: “I was born in the vineyards. I grew up in the vineyards. And the vineyards are my heart and soul. The Langhe are my home. This land gave me a very precious gift. As a thank you, every year, I harvest its fruits and look after them like a mother looks after her babies. They call me enologist, they say I’m a wine expert, they refer to me as a pioneer. But there’s only one truth: when nature speaks I listen. My land tells a unique story and I’m always listening”.

Reviews

***95/100 Wine Spectator***
This beautiful Barolo evokes cherry, strawberry, tar, leather, tobacco and mineral flavors. Fresh and racy, with a dense mesh of tannins underneath. Builds effortlessly to a long, mouth watering aftertaste.
Drink: 2020 through 2043

***89 Points- Wine Advocate***
The 2014 Barolo Arione is a hearty and savory expression with a dark color and mid-weight appeal. The bouquet opens to aromas of blackberry and bitter cherry with spice, rusty nail, licorice and toasted almond. The wine offers a slightly gritty texture in terms of mouthfeel. The finish is lean and compact. The jury is out on where its future evolution will take it. Monica Larmer- Robert Parker's- Wine Advocate.
