“La Ca Nova remains one of the true undiscovered jewels of Barbaresco. Marco Rocca crafts intense, classically proportioned Barbarescos full of personality.” Antonio Galloni

Marco’s vineyards are located in the commune of Barbaresco and include the prestigious crus of Monetefico and Montestefano, two of the best sites that are often referred to as being ‘baroloesque’ owing to their backbone and ageing capability. Located on the Eastern side of the commune and separated by a few hundred metres, Montestefano is a few hundred metres south of Montefico and was the first to be bottled as a single vineyard wine, by the legendary Beppe Colla (of Poderi Colla) in 1961.

Intensity and density here, with a long carpet of smooth yet gravelly tannin, ripe cherry and red berry, plenty of spice and nuts, aniseed, sage and new leather. Acidity is fresh, lively and perfectly integrated. Finish is almost succulent, though layers of ripe tannin tether it beautifully. Say no more. Tasted: Aug 19; Alcohol: 14.5%; Price: $110; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2023-2032+; Rated: 96 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
