THE MERCHANT'S MARK
96 / 100
How is it that only 45 cases of the 2016 Bruno Rocca Barbaresco get imported when about 1,200 cases are made? Because, this wine is good - very good - and few cases make their way out of Piedmont! The balance is enjoyed by locals and even other winemakers!

"The Bruno Rocca 2016 Barbaresco is a gorgeous wine that reveals impeccable balance, ongoing intensity and elegance, which accompany the wine from the start and continue straight through its long finish. The mouthfeel is buoyant and bright, yet there is a solid base of firm fruit and tannic backbone on the close. This is a buttoned-up and firmly etched expression of Nebbiolo from one of the most talented producers in Barbaresco. Great job, Bruno. He knocked out 15,426 [bottles] of these beauties."
