Albino Rocca Barbaresco Ronchi 2015
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco|
Aromas of iris, rose red berry and baking spice lead the way. On the full-bodied but seemingly weightless palate, firm close-grained tannins support dried morello cherry, licorice and clove alongside a savory, almost salty note. Drink 2020-2030.
The 2015 Barbaresco Ronchi is gorgeous. The richness of the vintage marries very well with the personality of the site, which results in an ample, powerful wine of real character. Bright red cherry, mint, chalk and floral overtones abound. The tannins need time to soften, but that should not be an issue here. This is an impeccable wine from the Rocca family.
A mix of sweet cherry, licorice and tar flavors, backed by dense tannins, this red has all the elements in the right proportions but will require time for them to come into balance. Fine length. Best from 2022 through 2038. 650 cases made, 300 cases imported.
The 2015 Barbaresco Ronchi is driven by dark and succulent fruit. Aromas of blackberry, dried cherry, spice, tobacco and smoke come together in seamless fashion. The wine offers intensity and power, all lavished over an accessible and velvety mouthfeel. You especially taste the warm vintage on the finish with cherry confit and blackberry preserves. Some 8,000 bottles were made.
