FINEST & RAREST

Savoury / earthy reds - BARBARESCO, Rabaja Bruno Rocca. Piedmont, Italy

2007 BARBARESCO, Rabaja Bruno Rocca. Piedmont

Bin: 737
Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: The village of Barbaresco is not as famous as its rival Barolo but shares a similar spectacular setting amongst the rolling Lange hills. Rabaja is a steep single vineyard right on the edge of the town.
Grape Variety: 100% Nebbiolo, aged in French oak, half new, for 17 months.
Producer: Bruno Rocca's parents bought the property in 1928. Bruno, who took over in 1978, is essentially a 'modernist' producer (he does use new, small French oak barrels) but he does retain elegance and structure in his wines. He has just 15 hectares and produces only 5-6,000 cases of wine a year.
Old Bridge Rating: This is not yet fully mature; just getting the classic tea leaf and violet aroma; full-bodied but (for Nebbiolo) relatively gentle and rounded
