Wonderfully harmonious and balanced Barbaresco single-site wine
The grapes for this Barbaresco come from the Montersino Cru, which is located in the smallest Barbaresco-producing municipality, San Rocco Seno D'Elvio. The Rocca family owns a plot there that faces south-west at an altitude of 350m. The wines of this cru are generally characterized by their fruitiness and great structure.
After hand-picking in October, the grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for a maximum of 20 days. The wine then matures in different oak barrels for the next 2 years. After six months in bottle storage, the wine finally goes on sale.
This Barbaresco wine is characterized by its garnet-red color, intense fruity notes and its full, structured taste. Its great balance is also worth mentioning. The wine is ready to drink immediately, has however, it has a long potential for development and will develop its potential over many years. The winery does not use herbicides, pesticides or ingredients in winemaking.
THE PRODUCER: ALBINO ROCCA
The history of this extraordinary winery began in the mid-1940s with Albino Rocca . He founded the winery and began selling his grapes to larger cellars in the area. It wasn't until much later that he decided to press his own wine from the grapes and sell it in demijohns.
The legendary Angelo Rocca, grandson of the company founder Albino, then took the winery to new heights and laid the foundation for a successful future. His influence can still be felt today even after his tragic death.
The current generation of Roccas, represented by Angelo's three daughters, has continuously developed the winery. Daniela, Monica and Paola have built on the great family tradition, and with great vigor and foresight increased the reputation of the winery internationally.
Today the winery produces around 100,000 bottles of wine annually on 18 hectares. These include three Barbaresco single-site wines, from the most renowned crus of the Barbaresco community. These are Montersino, Ovello and Ronchi.
