Barbaresco Ronchi

  • Albino Rocca
  • Piemonte, Italy

Method & Production

From the limestone rich, Ronchi Cru, which sits on the lower part of the appellation. The vineyards have a southeastern exposure and sit 240 meters above sea level. The wine is aged in large, 20 hectoliter German and Austrian oak casks for 2 years. 

Tasting notes

Deeper than the other cru’s, with a dense palate and a little more dark fruit. Great concentration, vibrance and texture.

"Albino Rocca's wines are characterised by beautifully pristine aromas and a seductive texture. In this example, I was arrested by a vibrant top note of intense redcurrant and violets and very juicy acidity: I love its brightness and intensity. It needs time but has fantastic potential." 95 points, Susan Hulme MW, Decanter (May 2019)
