Roccalini Barbaresco Roccalini 2008 750ml
Roccalini was by far the smallest vineyard we have ever seen. Paolo's family has owned the estate since 1920, but he is the first of the family to be a winemaker and bottle his own wines. Before this, his family was selling the grapes of the estate to his neighbor Giacosa from 1990-2005.
His approach to winemaking is to start in the vineyard and produce healthy grapes. He loves to be on his tractor and tend the land. He only works organically and takes care of many things by hand. The resulting wines are rich in flavor, complex in the terroir of the land, joyful and balanced.
