Visual aspects: Brilliant, garnet red, good intensity, with slight garnet/orange highlights. Olfactory aspects: Ethereal, intense and persistent, with scents of violet, cherry, spices (cinnamon, cloves), vanilla and leather. Taste aspects: Dry, warm, with generous body, robust and suitably tannic but not too austere, smooth, balanced, with an intense and persistent finish characterised by sensations reminiscent of the bouquet.

"Bright sleek and silky featuring oak spice notes that add dimension to the cherry strawberry and raspberry fruit. This has the sweetness to balance the dusty tannins on the finish but needs time. Best from 2014 through 2030." 94 Points Wine Spectator
Wine maker notes
During the ripening of the grapes we thin out the bunches to optimize the yield and then hand-select them before they undergo soft crushing. Selected yeasts that respect the fragrant aroma of the product are added to the must. At the end of temperature- controlled fermentation, the wine is drawn off and racked. The wine spends at least two years in oak barrels. It is then prepared for bottling and bottle refinement of up to a year before being released on the market, according to regulations, no sooner than the fourth year after the harvest.

Other text
At least 18/20 years if stored correctly, away from light, at a cool and constant temperature, in the same horizontal position as when it arrives in its case until the moment of consumption.

Producer
In the heart of the Langhe district, in the Ornati area of Monforte d’Alba, Tenuta Rocca is an estate with 37.06 acres (15 hectares) of vineyards. From 1986, it was managed by brothers Bruno and Gianni, who constantly modernized the vineyards over the years, and since 2011 Gianni and his son Andrea, an enotechnician, have taken over management of the estate. The large farmhouse dating back to the eighteenth century has been restored to its original splendour following meticulous architectural refurbishment. The creation of the modern cellar with underground rooms for optimal development and ageing of wines confirms the commitment, passion and determination with which the wine production that symbolizes the Alba area of the Langhe district is conceived. In order to compete at the very highest levels of quality, being fully aware of the goals already achieved by the estate and those to which it still aspires, it cooperates with the agronomist Gian Piero Romana, and the enologist Piero Ballario.
