La Ca 'Nova

La Ca' Nova

Marco Rocca is an old school winemaker. Without modern technology, he presses excellent Barbaresco wines in the traditional style.

The La Ca Növa winery is located just outside the municipality of Barbaresco. Marco Rocca, the owner, produces uncomplicated and classic wines. He is a very humble man who carries out the daily work in the vineyard with great experience and consistency. He thus creates the prerequisites for being able to produce grapes of optimum quality.

Marco is an old-school winemaker who is shaped by the tradition and culture of the region. So he produces his wines almost without modern technology. The fermentation takes place without temperature controlled tanks and only with natural yeast. As before, Marco uses open wooden tubs. The mash is then tumbled during fermentation with a large wooden spoon. A very exhausting and time-consuming process, but one that extracts more color and polyphenols.

With a production of around 50,000 bottles of wine per year, Marco's priority is his three different Barbaresco wines. Two of them are single-site wines from the Cru Montefico and Montestefano . But Marco is just as proud of his Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera wines.
