Bruno Rocca Barbaresco 2015
100% Nebbiolo made with grapes coming from our vineyards in Neive. The soil is clayish tuff with some sandy veins.
Color: intense garnet red.
Nose: dense with fruit (blackberries, black cherries and plums), overtones of slightly withered rose and violet petals and spices.
Flavour: warm, elegant and wrapping, long lasting flavour with overtones confirming aromas perceived on the nose with one note of cocoa.
A pretty red, leading with rose, strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors allied to an elegant frame, this is firmly structured, if a bit lacier in texture than many 2015s, with accents of earth, tobacco and tar. Ends with a chalky feel. Best from 2022 through 2040. 1,324 cases made.
Bruno Rocca's beautiful 2015 Barbaresco sees fruit sourced from various parcels, including the lower part of the Currà cru and the Fausoni vineyard. The farming crew was especially careful not to pull too many leaves during this hot summer, thus safeguarding much of the wine's natural acidity. Those watchful farming procedures also did much to guarantee primary fruit freshness and purity. Those results include dark cherry and blackberry aromas with spicy herbal notes on the close. The wine's texture is silky, and the tannins show a mild point of dryness.
