In addition to its classic source—a parcel of old vines in Meruzzano—Rocca’s Barbaresco now takes in a selection of young-vine fruit from three Barbaresco Cru parcels: Ovello, Ronchi and Cottà. These sources, along with the winemaking—three weeks on skins and maturation exclusively in large Stockinger botti for 24 months—means we can expect a pretty serious wine at this level. 

It’s a terrific introduction to the year. From the off, you can sense the presence of the fleshy power and precision that characterise Rocca’s 2019 Barbaresco’s. The nose already shows great aromatic charm with red fruit purity, flecked by floral prettiness and lifted spice. The palate is vibrant and fleshy, more ‘filled out’ than 2018 and crammed with graceful flow cosseted by fine, mouthcoating tannins and wonderful freshness. It finishes on a Campari note with great length. It all adds up to an excellent vintage for this cuvée.

Reviews

“Fleshy and laced with cherry, plum, eucalyptus and earth flavors, this red is balanced, solidly built and long. Lively, with an aftertaste infused with cherry, currant, mineral and leafy accents. Best from 2025 through 2042.”
93 points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
“The 2019 Barbaresco is a very pretty, intensely aromatic wine. Dried herbs, rose petal, blood orange, cedar, sweet pipe tobacco and sweet dried cherry all grace this attractive, mid-weight Barbaresco from the Meruzzano cru. Drink it over the next decade or so. I would give this a good bit of air first, though.”
