The grapes for this Barbaresco come from the Ovello Cru, the largest in the municipality of Barbaresco. The Rocca family owns a plot of land facing south-west and on the side facing away from the municipality of Barbaresco. In general, this location is considered to be one of the warmest in the region, which guarantees grapes of optimal ripeness.
After the 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 goes on sale.
The wine is ready to drink straight away, but has a long-term maturity and will develop its potential over many years. The winery operates integrated viticulture.
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.
