95pts Wine Enthusiast

Violet, woodland berry and wild herb aromas mingle with a whiff of star anise. All about understated elegance, the savory, full-bodied palate reflects the nose, delivering crushed strawberry, blood orange and licorice alongside smooth, refined tannins. It's well balanced, with bright acidity while a hint of graphite gives the finish depth. KERIN O’KEEFE

94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

With fruit from the village of Barbaresco, this wine shows a broad and more wide-sweeping approach to the bouquet. The Albino Rocca 2018 Barbaresco Ronchi offers cassis and wild rose with a more etched tone of crushed stone at the back. Its overall performance remains quite elegant, but I can't help but notice the extra momentum and power on offer here. This was a release of about 8,000 bottles. 

Winemaker Notes

Bright ruby red with garnet reflections. Fine, elegant, and fruity aromas of raspberry, strawberry and black cherries. Dry, warm, quite smooth, fresh, medium-bodied, rightly tannic, intense, quite persistent, fresh and fruity finish

 

Match with pasta with meat sauce and medium seasoned cheese.
