“Paola, Monica and Daniela Rocca have unhesitatingly taken up the winemaking and moral legacy of their father Angelo following since his untimely death in 2012. They now continue with the story that won many fans thanks to above all to the happy combination of courteous affability permeating the Ronchi farm and the appealing, well-measured pace of the Estate’s Barbarescos.” Gambero Rosso
“Albino Rocca is one of the most intriguing estates in Barbaresco right now.” Antonio Galloni, Vinous
“Albino Rocca’s wines are characterised by beautifully pristine aromas and a seductive texture…” Susan Hulme MW, Decanter
The Rocca family have been cultivating Nebbiolo for over a century and produced their first own label Barbaresco in 1971. They own 18 hectares of vineyards with some vines dating back 70 years. Their holdings include some of the historic and important crus of Barbaresco: Ronchi, Ovello, Cotta and Montersino.
