Food Pairings for Bruno Rocca Nebbiolo Barbaresco Rabajà
The Rocca family originates from Barbaresco. Bruno Rocca took charge of the family business when his father died in 1978, and decided that all the wine produced by the estate would from then on be sold in bottle. Bruno now has 12 hectares of vineyards, of which 5 are planted in the prestigious Rabaja cru. Since taking over the estate Rocca has risen to the top of the quality tree in Barbaresco. Stylistically he is a consummate modernist, yet the wines have great intensity of fruit and wonderful oak balance. Bruno recently acquired a very old, no longer commercially viable, 3 hectare vineyard in Neive which he is now slowly replanting with excellent results. The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine come from younger vines, grown predominantly in Neive, with 20-30% of fruit also grown in Treiso and Barbaresco. Soils in the Neive vineyard are sandy and tufaceous with yields of approximately 35-38 hl/ha. The resulting wine has ripe cherry and raspberry fruit flavours with hints of sweet vanilla oak. The tannins are supple and silky. The wine is long and beautifully balanced.
