Superb value and a real delight, this Bruno Rocca is coming soon to a decanter near you -- where it will be showing very nicely after the interval. Packed with that pretty drink-younger charm of Barbaresco's more generous sun, it also brings Nebbiolo's beautiful rose-petal aromatics, fruit depth, fine structure, mineral complexity and a textural softness and elegance that has won Bruno Rocca a reputation for special deliciousness. With the serious balance to improve for decades in cellar, this X factor wine is a lot of goodness in the glass for $60 odd!

Overview

Grape

Nebbiolo

Its Origins

Bruno Rocca’s parents bought the estate's current property in the 1950‘s when they moved to Rabaja from Barbaresco. Bruno took over the estate when his father died in 1978. As a consummate modernist, Bruno uses modern technology to produce wines with tremendous intensity of fruit balanced by the characteristic Piemontese structure and a judicious use of oak. His wines look, smell and taste like real Nebbiolo and unlike an increasing number of other Piemonte producers, he never feels the need to add a certain extra something to deepen the colour or round out the palate. Bruno started bottling in 1978 and since then has risen to the top of the quality tree in this area, producing a Barbaresco and the single vineyard Rabaja Barbaresco. His daughter, Luisa now works with him at the estate as the marketing manager.

What The Critics Say

92/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2014 Barbaresco is just as impressive today as it was last year. Fresh, aromatic and brisk on the palate, the Barbaresco captures all the pedigree of this vintage. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, cedar, mint and pine give the wine brightness, an impression that is reinforced by high acidity and pulsating tannins. The 2014 is a blend of fruit from the lower portion of Currà (the upper part is destined for the Riserva), Fausoni, Marcorino and San Cristoforo."

92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Monica Larner

"Bruno Rocca is a master when it comes to achieving elegance and finesse with the Nebbiolo grape. The 2014 Barbaresco is a great example of this talent. The bouquet is subdued and even shy at first, but it opens slowly with impressive complexity and nuance. Many descriptors apply here including cassis, licorice, spice, white truffle and balsam herb. The mouthfeel exhibits extreme silkiness and grace. Give this wine a few more years of cellar age to flesh out further." Drink 2018 - 2028
