THE REVIEW

Extremely Limited. This is our third offering from the stellar 2010 Piedmont vintage.
    Though you'd be fortunate to enjoy any of our recently featured 2010 Piedmont reds, the hardest part in singling out a particular wine in such a good vintage is finding "value" among a pool of overall better quality wines. Yes, even in amazing vintages, value is still a relative term. While we may feature other 2010 Piedmont reds in the future, the 2010 Bruno Rocca Coparossa Barbaresco needs to be singled out for its amazing fruit, pipe tobacco aromas, hints of bitter chocolate and cool, refreshing mint on the silky finish. It is truly a standout and treasure among a sea of good wines from this elegant vintage.
    The value is often found with producers who seek to make the best expression of their vineyards year in and year out. They reward us with something unique and special in unique and special vintages. In such years as 2010, they are not just making great Barbaresco, they are making, for example, great Bruno Rocca Barbaresco.
    "The 2010 Barbaresco Coparossa is extremely elegant and refined with dried flowers, herbal notes, bright cola and Pinot-like softness. This is a stunning effort. The wine is irresistibly silky and sensuous on the palate, imparting clean fruit flavors that last long on the finish. It delivers fabulous length with seemingly never-ending intensity and persistency." The Wine Advocate
