  • THE BRIEF
  • In the late 1950s, Bruno Rocca’s father Francesco, and his wife Maria Adelaide purchased a vineyard in Rabajà and moved there from the centre of Barbaresco. This marked the beginning, in particular for Bruno, who from a very early age began to view the grapes as the true expression of the land. In 1978 Bruno decided to carve out a new direction, rather than selling the grapes to large barbaresco producers, Bruno began to sell bottled wine on the Italian and world stage.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • In the late 1950s, Bruno Rocca's father Francesco, and his wife Maria Adelaide purchased a vineyard in Rabaj and moved there from the centre of Barbaresco.

In 1978 Bruno decided to carve out a new direction, rather than selling the grapes to large barbaresco producers, Bruno began to sell bottled wine on the Italian and world stage. 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.

    MONICA LARNER - WINE ADVOCATE


    The Bruno Rocca 2016 Barbaresco is a gorgeous wine that reveals impeccable balance, ongoing intensity and elegance, which accompany the wine from the start and continue straight through its long finish. The mouthfeel is buoyant and bright, yet there is a solid base of firm fruit and tannic backbone on the close. This is a buttoned-up and firmly etched expression of Nebbiolo from one of the most talented producers in Barbaresco. Great job, Bruno.

    Neive. Tasted blind. Mid ruby with orange tinges. Sweetly concentrated, slightly jammy cherry fruit on the nose and with hints of chalk. Supple, ripe and with an elegant medium-weight palate and plenty of vibrant acidity. Bags of chewy tannins and juicy fruit that need more age to settle. 17 / 20 Points.
