Product Description

Having dropped the Barbera from the blend, the new look Rosso di Rocca is now 95% Nebbiolo and 5% Cabernet Franc, with the Nebbiolo hailing from a newly purchased vineyard at Magliano Alfieri in the Roero. The vines here were planted in 1998 and 1967 while the Cabernet Franc comes from 20-year-old vines in Barbaresco.

Roero's sandy, clay-rich soils and warmer microclimate gifts a vivid, charming, early drinking wine in comparison to Rocca's wines bottled under the Nebbiolo d'Alba or Barbaresco DOCG. The wine's upbringing, solely in tank, and early bottling under Stelvin helps in this regard as well and keeps the wine vibrant and fresh. Having said this, the 2017 has a bit more stuffing than usual, reflecting the vintage. It's packed with juicy, red and blackcurrant and rose scented fruit with a class and tension that is terrific for the price.
