From: Piedmont, Italy
Tasting Notes: Intense and lively garnet red color with subtle orange reflections, intense, persistent, and elegant aroma, with fruity hints of raspberry, cherry, and strawberry, plum jam. Followed by the ethereal sensation and other more evolved ones such as tobacco and hay, cinnamon, pepper, and vanilla; also present balsamic hints such as mentholated. In the mouth, it is full, dry, ample, and full-bodied, with a well-integrated tannin texture, warm and persistent.
Pairing: Serve with grilled red meat; pork sausages; mushroom dishes.
Hand-crafted from field to bottle, craft shared as tradition from generation to generation—this is what makes Barbaresco from Azienda Agricola Ronchi so special.
Winemaker Giancarlo Rocca and three generations of the Rocca clan live in a house built by the family, surrounded by ‘Ronchi’ cru vines. This natural amphitheater not only captures the sun to push Nebbiolo to perfect ripeness but also is stunningly picturesque.
Although we have worked with the Rocca family for at least a decade, their peerless Nebbiolo wines are still an insider’s find. The “Ronchi” cru runs along the southern edge of the appellation, near the historic town of Barbaresco. Bordered by ‘Montestefano’ to the north, where Nebbiolo shows a deep complexity and elegant tannins, and ‘Moccagatta’ to the south, the source of silky Nebbiolo with delicate yet intense perfumes, ‘Ronchi’ combines the best of all these attributes in a wine that is unforgettable.
