"Rose, red-berry, camphor and dark-spice aromas slowly emerge in the glass. Showing Serralunga's hallmark of firm structure and finesse, the full-bodied, youthfully tense palate delivers juicy red cherry, raspberry compote, dried mint and licorice set against a backbone of noble tannins. Bright acidity keeps it impeccably balanced. Drink 2026–2056." - Kerin O’Keefe, 97 POINTS

Lavish sweet spice and rosy perfume, red berries and cherry, almond paste and mint. Full-bodied, but fresh, succulence of red fruit and almond, almost sweet, but firm chalk dust tannin, inner perfume of flowers and bergamot tea, maybe liquorice root, and a very long finish that makes you think of warm bricks and stony things. Champion wine of substance and tannic sustenance. So very very good. Tasted: Jul 2020; Alcohol: 14%; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2024-2038+" Rated: 96 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

The Giovanni Rosso 2016 Barolo Cerretta is a tight, focused and high-energy expression of Nebbiolo. Red and purple fruit aromas of cassis, dried cranberry and cherry provide pretty highlights, but ample space is given to those equally pretty aromas of licorice, campfire ash and candied orange peel that so deftly play supporting roles. To the palate, this is a glossy, polished wine with enough tannic kick to carry it forward for another 10 or 20 years of cellar aging. The Wine Advocate, 24 July, 2020

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
