Two vineyards contribute to the production of the Nebbiolo grapes that go into the making of Albino and Angelo Rocca’s Barbaresco: Loreto and Bric Ronchi, both remarkable crus of the
appellation. The viticultural practices are strict: organic fertilization, short pruning and green pruning. The very low production per hectare results in remarkable concentration - an engaging delight to the palate and a guarantee of longevity that many a Barbaresco no longer possesses. Equally important: while already producing very fine wine, Albino and Angelo Rocca have a true yearning for improvement, and an openness towards novel winemaking techniques which they successfully apply. Proof of this are the wines still resting in the cellar’s casks and barriques, the quality of which rivals the very best Barbaresco.
