Producer: Bruno Rocca
Grape: Nebbiolo 100%
Pronunciation: ‘Lang-ghe Nebbi-yolo’
Region: Piedmont, Italy
Zone: Rabaja, Barbaresco, Langhe Nebbiolo DOC
Producer Info: The philosophy of wine as the natural expression of the Barbaresco territory was widely appreciated, and with the estate’s gradual growth came the purchase of new plots of land and the expansion of the cellar, which continues to today with Bruno’s children Francesco and Luisa now both closely involved in all aspects of the wine production and sales. The Bruno Rocca company philosophy is clear, as Rocca himself affirms: Wine is the mirror and soul of the ground, and the territory, if protected and defended, it will never let you down.
Tasting note: The 2013 Langhe Nebbiolo Fralù delivers earthy tones with savory spice, leather, wild mushroom and cured meat. The wine boasts big bones and bold lines with thick berry aromas and important structure and texture. The wine is aged in French barrique for 12 months. Its bigger style is appropriate for a pairing with grilled meat or spicy sausage. – The Wine Advocate
