About six weeks ago, I was in Serralunga d’Alba and visited with Davide Rosso, winemaker for Barolo producer Giovanni Rosso. In my blog post, I mentioned the new facility that the Rosso Family is building that will significantly expand the production capacity of their winery. They just posted a video to update progress on the new cantina.
Since my visit, they have completed a significant portion of the excavation that was needed to level the area where the remaining portion of the cantina will be built. Davide said he anticipated the cantina would be ready for production by harvest 2014. There is still plenty of work ahead.
