- ABV 13.5%
- Closure: Cork
A 100% Dolcetto sourced from the village of Barbaresco, the Trifole vineyards border Rabaja. The average age of the vines is 40-50 years.
Totally opaque black dark purple colour with a bright dark purple hue. Perfumed rose petal scents overlay dark cherries and plum with elements of incense, inky earth and fresh herb infusions also apparent. Light in body the palate is vibrantly fruited with ripe cherry and plum flavours overlaid by incense infusions and fresh herbs. Finishes dry with some inky earth like characters. Crisp acidity and slightly chalky tannins with an aftertaste of fresh ripe cherries, plum, earthy incense, fresh herbs and a light inkiness.
Cellar 4-5 years.
The Bruno Rocca wines were formally established in 1978, though the family had been growing and selling grapes well before that (somewhere around the 1830s they say). It’s a family of growers, rather than winemakers, though that balance has shifted in recent years. This comes from a vineyard right near Rabaja, and owned by the family since before grandfather’s days. Produced in stainless steel here.
A wine of freshness, crisp tannin, clarity/purity, deliciousness. Light and sinewy in style, red fruited but savoury, a touch ashy, offering dusty-clovey spice, gently sweet but frisky with amaro-like acidity. It’s such a lovely drink, skinny, but imbued with a tension and vitality that draws you in. Dolcetto doesn’t get much better. Drink 2017-2021.
