Vigneto Cerretta

Vigneti Giovanni RossoOwned by the Rosso family since 1920, the plot was partly replanted in 1984 and 2000. Situated about 2 miles (3km) to the north of Serralunga village, Cerretta lies close to the hamlet of Baudana and envelops that of Cerretta.

The fruit for this Cru wine comes from the best parcel which is shaped like an amphitheatre facing south-east. This part of the vineyard provides a particularly good micro-climate for Nebbiolo since it is protected from stronger winds by the copse at the bottom of the slope.

The soil is essentially made up of calcareous clay or marl. Particular attention is to paid to canopy management, to ensure correct shoot & fruit spacing. The last topping is no later than mid-August to allow new growth, critical when achieving full phenolic ripeness of the grapes. The green harvest is also important here.
