  • TASTING NOTE: “Fleshy and laced with cherry, plum, eucalyptus and earth flavors, this red is balanced, solidly built and long. Lively, with an aftertaste infused with cherry, currant, mineral and leafy accents.” Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
  • ABOUT THE WINE: In addition to its classic source—a parcel of old vines in Meruzzano—Rocca’s Barbaresco now takes in a selection of young-vine fruit from three Barbaresco Cru parcels: Ovello, Ronchi and Cottà. These sources, along with the winemaking (three weeks on skins and maturation exclusively in large Stockinger botti for 24 months), mean we can expect a pretty serious wine at this level. 
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: It’s easy to forget that Nebbiolo, produced from great sites and mature vines can be a wickedly seductive wine to drink young. The late Angelo Rocca was a master at reminding us of this fact. When Angelo Rocca tragically passed away in 2012 in a light plane accident, Barbaresco lost one of its most distinguished growers. Rocca was operating at the peak of his powers and producing the most exciting, terroir-intense wines of his career. His three daughters (Daniela, Monica and Paola) along with Angelo’s cellarmaster (and son-in-law) Carlo have been determined to continue this legacy and in recent years, they have not missed a beat. These are deeply classical wines in one sense (large cask, natural ferments, savoury tannins, etc.) and yet they are also wonderfully pure and precise. They nod to modernity in the best possible way. Of course, it helps that they have such wonderful holdings, use only Estate grown grapes and work very well in the vineyards with no herbicides, pesticides and only organic fertiliser. All the wines are aged in large, neutral botti and remain contemporary in the sense that they are ripe, pure and meticulously made, but instead of any distracting new oak character, you have that wonderful dark cherry, floral and savoury structured personality of Nebbiolo in all its Piemontese glory.
