Bruno Rocca Barbaresco 2011
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco|
Wine SpectatorThough ripe, this stays grounded, featuring mineral and earth notes coursing through the core of cherry, floral and spice flavors. Succulent and harmonious, with a light dusting of tannins lingering along with fruit and spice details. Best from 2017 through 2026. 900 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Barbaresco is a toned and elegant wine that opens to thick layers and soft fruit flavors. Black cherry, prune, spice, leather and tobacco emerge from the bouquet. The wine exhibits a thick, heavy style that is characteristic of the warm 2011 vintage. Soft tannins and bold flavors of blackberry and exotic spice round off the close.
