Angelo Rocca is committed to quality in his winery, and his vineyards. For generations his family has grown grapes in the hills of Barbaresco, starting at the turn of the 20th century. Today Angelo continues to work in the vineyards as well as the cellar. He seeks balance and harmony in combining traditional techniques and modern technologies. Slowly but steadily he has increased the size of his estate to its current 18 hectares. With most of his vineyards located in Barbaresco, Angelo also has vineyards in Neive as well as in the small village San Rocco Seno d'Elvio, which is located right outside of the town of Alba but is still in the Barbaresco appellation. In addition to Nebbiolo and Barbaresco, the grape and wine that are Angelo's greatest passion, the estate also produces Barbera, Dolcetto, Cortese and Chardonnay. The annual production of the estate is about 106.000 bottles, which are sold allover the world. Read less

The dark ruby/garnet-colored 1998 Barbaresco Vigneto Brich Ronchi reveals abundant aromas of new saddle leather mixed with spice box kirsch liqueur beet roots and oak. In the mouth it is rich as well as tannic. This pure ripe long Barbaresco is best cellared for another year and consumed over the following decade. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Terrific. Fabulous aromas of berries violets coconut and flowers. Full-bodied with super well-integrated silky tannins crisp and juicy acidity and a long long finish. This is a winery on a roll in Barbaresco. Best after 2007. 1 100 cases made. Wine Spectator.

Full ruby-tinged red. Cool complex aromas of black cherry currant camphor tar mint and violet. Sweet dense and packed with fruit; large-scaled and lush given shape by ripe acidity. More powerful than the Loreto but the big broad tannins are also extremely well buffered. Less expressive on the back end than the Loreto but shows outstanding length. Like the 97 this wine does not come across as especially oaky due to its sheer material. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
