Description

Bruno Rocca Barbaresco Currà 2018

Bruno Rocca Barbaresco Currà delights the senses. Ruby red colour. Breaks open with a red fruit and floral nose that has notes of red currant, raspberry, rose and geranium. The dry and full-bodied palate has a vibrant acidity and silky mouthfeel thanks to round tannins. Fresh blackberry, raspberry and strawberry core flavour with elements of tobacco, coffee and oak spice. Closes in a long and pleasant spicy finish.

100% Nebbiolo. The fruit for this wine comes from a single plot (of the Currà vineyards Cru in the village of Neive, bought by the Rocca family in 2001. The soil is limestone-clay with the typical blue Sant'Agata marl: a mix of silicates, carbonates and volcanic ash. The average age of the vines is 50–60 years.

Hand harvesting and selection of the grapes in the vineyard. Second selection at the sorting table before the grapes undergo fermentation in wooden casks for 25–30 days. The wine ages for 24 months in French oak barriques and then spends 12 months in bottle before release.

Ageing potential: over 25 years.
