About The Wine
The Albino Rocca Barbaresco Ronchi Reserva is a barrel-selection wine showcasing the best of the vineyard in the best vintages.
With vines planted between 1950 and 1980, their maturity gives the wine depth and concentration of fruit characters, showing the red spectrum of cherry, as well as raspberry and some spicy depth from liquorice and violet, revealing the more floral and "pretty" side of this rich wine.
It has oodles of structure and body on the palate, with the tannins showing that this wine is still nowhere near its best, but if you like your Barbarescos when they're still relatively young, you're in for a marvellous treat with this wine.
About Albino Rocca
Albino Rocca is one of the premier producers in Barbaresco. Their wines have an air of effortless transparency and elegance about them, showing the charms and beauty of Piemonte with traditional winemaking and great vineyards as the foundations.
Following Angelo Rocca's tragic passing in 2012, his three daughters (Daniela, Monica and Paola) have taken the estate to new heights, consistently releasing outstanding blended and single vineyard Barbarescos, and driving the quality of the Barbera and Dolcetto to new heights.
They were recently awarded “Green Experience” certification - a brand dedicated to the wines of Piedmont aiming at a collective, integrated and sustainable certification for the region. The accreditation promotes both conservation of natural resources and protection of the magnificent, rolling landscape. Its goal is an ecological viticulture achieved via natural agricultural techniques and decreased use of chemicals.
