Bruno Rocca Barbaresco Curra 2015

Wine Advocate: 93

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.

Iris, violet, wild berry and a whiff of espresso take shape in the glass. The taut, linear palate offers dried cherry, cranberry, star anise and ground clove, while polished tannins provide the backbone. Drink 2021–2029.
