Cascina Roccalini Barbaresco 2017 - Piedmont
Bottle size: 750ml
The beautiful wine adventure of Cascina Roccalini begins in 2004, when Paolo Veglio, a young and experienced winemaker, begins to make wine on his own with the help of Dante Scaglione (winemaker for decades a Bruno Giacosa). Today Paolo produces just over 10,000 bottles a year: a small and artisanal production faithful to a personal and very traditional style. Since 1993 the grapes were given to the famous producer Bruno Giacosa, who considered the grapes of the Roccalini cru among the best in the whole Barbaresco area.
This is a single Cru in Barbaresco which give to the winery the name. The Roccalini wines faithfully reflect the territory from which they come and are characterized by a genuine and traditional method: they stand out in the panorama of the Langhe wines. Tones of strawberries and violets brightened by fresh white pepper and chamomille. Great structure, rich tannin, and savory notes. One world Elegant.
The first thing that gets you with this wine is the sheer ethereal prettiness of it. Aromas of mostly red berry fruit like strawberry and red macerated cherries minglie with whiffs of rose petal and violet against earthen spice delicacies. In the mouth the wine comes alive with characters that echo the lovely nose in a mid weight style showing pure delicious Nebbiolo fruit wrapped in fine Nebbiolo tannins. The fruit is so attractive but there’s a core of mineral/savoury character too which keeps things serious. An elegant almost pinot-esque Barbaresco that gives immense pleasure to drink… CR
