Product Description

In addition to its classic source--a parcel of old vines in Meruzzano--Rocca's Barbaresco now takes in 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 here. The 2016 is a blinder. It's just so lovely--with a silky, fluid texture and loads of personality. Already so damn drinkable. Galloni's notes sum it up well. 

"The 2016 Barbaresco is a gorgeous entry-level wine in this range. Dark and fleshy, the 2016 offers terrific depth as well as plenty of character, which is great to see in its peer group. Black cherry, plum, mocha, leather, spice and licorice all meld together. One of the more open wines in the range, the Barbaresco will also give readers an idea of what to expect. This is an absolutely delicious wine in its peer group and price range. The straight Barbaresco is a blend from Meruzzano and young vine fruit from Ronchi." 92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
