Description

A refined and expressive Barbaresco wine

The estate

From the 1950s onwards, the Rocca family gradually acquired plots of vines near the town of Barbaresco, in the Piedmont region. In 1978, Bruno Rocca, a former miner, decided to produce his own wines with the ambition of elaborating vintages that express the richness and authenticity of fine Italian terroir.

The vineyard

Bruno Rocca reigns over a 15-hectare vineyard.

The wine

Bruno Rocca's 2019 Rabajà is a Piedmont wine stemming from the eponymous vineyard in the village of Barbaresco. The vines are 70 years old on average and are planted on limestone-rich soil.

The vintage

A cold and rainy winter preceded a spring that alternated between mild conditions and rainy spells, resulting in a heterogeneous development of the vineyard depending on the plots. While June was noticeably hot, July was marked by cool and particularly wet conditions. Hot and dry, August gave way to a rainy September, but the significant temperature variations between day and night ensured an optimal ripening of the grapes until the harvest.

Vinification and ageing

The wine is vinified for 25 to 30 days in wooden barrels. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for approximately 24 to 36 months.

The blend

Nebbiolo (100%).
