The greatest wines of Europe are made up of what we call the ‘Bs’ of the wine world. These wine regions make up the greatest cellar quality wines of the world today. They are Burgundy, Bordeaux, Barolo, Brunello and the great region of Barbaresco. The wines of Barbaresco are some of the greatest the world has to offer. Italy in 2010 had an exceptional vintage. One of the greatest ever! Parker’s WA has hailed the vintageas one of the greatest ever. Spectator, Suckling and Galloni have also given huge praise, "In my view, 2010 will go down as one of the great all-time vintages. The wines show beautifully delineated aromatics, punchy fruit and vibrant, mouth-watering acidity." Other comments include, "Exceptional" and "one of the greatest"

Bruno Rocca is one of the greatest producers in Barbaresco, owning eight hectares, five of which are in the prestigious Rabaja vineyard, one of the most storied vineyards in Piedmont. His wines in top vintages are always among the best produced and are must haves for anyone who loved Barbaresco. His wines show excellent finesse and elegance. Parker’s WA refers to the 2010 as ‘stunning’ with ‘extraordinary elegance and balance’. Parker’s score of 94pts will make this one of the highest rated regular bottling. This 2010 displaysbrilliantly the refinement and complexity that great Barbaresco achieves. This is a great wine made by one of the great smaller family run houses in Barbaresco. These wines are at the top of the wine pendulum. All lovers of great wine must experience great Barbaresco and this is your chance.

Tasting Notes: The 2010 Barbaresco is a stunning wine that shows extraordinary elegance and balance. The celebrated qualities of the 2010 vintage shine straight through the glass. Tonic and crystalline in appearance, the bouquet is laced with small berry, dried mint, rose petal, ginger and cola. These aromas build in intensity, adding considerable complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.94pts Parker’s WA
