Bruno Rocca Barbaresco 2014

14% abv

The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine come from younger vines, grown predominantly in Neive, in the commune lying in the north-east hills of Barbaresco village. 20-30% of the fruit is grown in Treiso and Barbaresco. The soil originates from the Tertiary Period or the Cenozoic Era of nearly 70 million years ago and is rich in limestone and micronutrients ideal for growing Nebbiolo. The Neive vineyard is particularly sandy and tufaceous, creating full-bodied wines with firm tannins.

The growing season in 2014 started slowly, with low temperatures in March and April. May was rainy and poor summer conditions were experienced throughout Italy. Temparatures improved in September and October, with fresh nights and warm days that allowed the grapes to ripen well. Harvest took place later and in cooler weather than previous vintages.

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and lasted 20-25 days. 50% of the wine was then transferred into new French oak barrels (Allier, medium toast), and the remaining 50% was placed into old French oak barriques. The wine was matured for 18 months and then spent 12 months in bottle before release.

Intense garnet in the glass. Very fruity aromas of blackberries, wild black cherries and plums mingle with subtle rose and violet characters, with hints of spice. Warm and elegant, the long lasting flavours finish with a hint of cocoa.
