About this wine
This wine will be released next September and represents a totally new product from Bruno Rocca and his children. The Rocca family owns five hectares in the Currà cru and has been buying small parcels over the years since 2001. Fruit from the lower-altitude parts of the cru go to the Langhe Nebbiolo. The best parts end up in the 2015 Barbaresco Currà. The soils in this cru are characterized by an important mineral component with sandy limestone. Winemaking was executed with as little racking as possible to avoid contact with oxygen. The wine is crisp, contained and very elegant as a result. Drying mineral tones of flint and campfire ash add to the polished intensity of the bouquet.
The 2015 Barbaresco Currà captures the nerviness that is such a signature of this site, along with the more forward character of the year. Sweet tobacco, cedar, dried flowers and mint meld into a core of sweet dried cherries in this very pretty, mid-weight Barbaresco. Drink it over the next decade.
