Professional Wine Reviews for Albino Rocca Barbaresco Ronchi 2015

Rated 94 by James Suckling
Aromas of blueberries and hot stones follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh and vivid finish with lovely chocolate and hazelnuts. Clean and refined throughout. Drink or hold.
Rated 93 by Decanter
This comes from vines aged between 50-70 years old, planted on mineral-rich limestone and clay soils. The nose is dense for Barbaresco, with cherry and raspberry aromas leading onto a fresh attack, which is livelier than the nose suggests. Fine acidity lifts the mid-palate. Concentrated, spicy, and elegant, this shows fine length.

Winery Albino Rocca

Region: Piedmont

Situated in the north-western part of Italy, the region of Piedmont is known worldwide and is highly respected for the quality of the wines produced there. Many of the most successful sub-regions in Piedmont produce many of the world's finest red wines, such as those made from the excellent Nebbiolo grape varietal in areas such as Barolo and Barbaresco. However, the historic wineries which typify this region use a relatively wide variety of grapes, including Dolcetto and Barbera for their red wines, which are typically aged and have a delightful velvety character. Piedmont isn't all about beautifully complex red wines, though, as it is also famed for high quality, elegant sparkling wines, notably the Asti wines made with the white Moscato grape. The region benefits from a range of terroirs which are often well expressed in the sparkling wines, and a wonderfully consistent climate ideal for vineyard cultivation.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
