About The Wine
Rocca's Dolcetto d'Alba is drawn primarily from a single vineyard in Barbaresco, with the viticulture treated just as seriously as their more famous Nebbiolo sites.
No oak is used in this lively, juicy red but there is a good amount of fine grape tannin that is common in high quality Dolcetto.
There's also a touch of bittersweet, amaro character evident, and some light spice. Beautiful mid-week drinking.
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.
