Vigneti Giovanni Rosso In the picture you can see the condition of the vineyards at the end of 2010. The red line (-) shows the exact boundaries of the particle owned by Giovanni Rosso. Following the death of Tommasino Canale, Davide Rosso decided to replace a large part of the old vines that became by that time "exhausted" (about 0.80 hectares) preserving the part of the vineyard planted in 1946 (over 0.40 hectares delimited by the yellow line - ). From these seventy years old plants, characterized by very low yields, we obtain our Barolo Vignarionda; only those roots so deep can tell the story of this vineyard.

A rigorous choice that shows the seriousness and the excellence of this company. The replanting has been done at the beginning of 2011 by cloning the mass selection of the original vines. Immediately the grapes expressed an incredible potential, despite of their young age, merit of the unique characteristics of this plot. Here comes the desire to produce a great Langhe Nebbiolo able to represent, along with the wise Barolo Vignarionda, an authentic photograph of this mythical Cru.

This very limited series of bottles will be produced only in certain vintages, until when the young vines will have reached the right maturity crucial to become a purebreed Barolo exactly as we think it should be: a premium quality wine of rare prestige.

THE Vignarionda STORY

Owned by the Rosso family since 1934, the plot was partly replanted in 2011; 0,40ha of the parcel are planted by vines of 1947. This vineyard is fully-south faced and the soil is calcareous (limestone): maximum potential for nebbiolo grapes.

Particular attention is to paid to all the seasonal operations. Cleaning and hoeing are completely hand-made.

Canopy management and green harvesting must be done with great refinement , mostly in the warm vintages .This vineyard needs the utmost care and respect especially for the old plants.
