Description

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 neighbour 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 flavour, complex in the terroir of the land, joyful and balanced Fermented in stainless steel the Roccalini Barbaresco spends 12 months in Slovenian grandi botti.

TASTING NOTES

Red and purple flowers in the nose, kissed with cinnamon and nutmeg, leading you into a smouldering embrace of red currant, black raspberry, baking spice, sweet basil, white pepper, Tabasco-infused, chocolates and black cherries. There are violets and minerals in there as well and the ensemble is rich, yet elegant with a very long finish.

FOOD PAIRING

Braised meats, risottos with earthy tones such as porcini mushrooms and some of the more powerful cheeses such as blue cheese are all great options.
