Winemaker Notes
This area is hard to see from the usual roads but Roccalini has recently gained recognition thanks to our Barbaresco, distributed in several wine stores in Piedmont and Liguria. Good soils and excellent exposure of the upper part of the amphitheatre make Roccalini one of the most interesting areas in the whole of Barbaresco, and it also offers a breath-taking view of the town of Alba and the River Tanaro. It’s no mere coincidence that, in the past, great winemaker Bruno Giacosa purchased grapes grown in this area. The potential of the Roccalini subzone is undoubtedly equal to that of more famous areas such as Roncagliette, Asili and Martinenga.
Food & Wine Pairing
Pair it with red meats, mature cheeses (Castelmagno, Toma di Langa), game, pasta with meat sauces, roast venison.
