La Ca’ Nova Barbaresco 2015

$82.00

“Flat out charming. Red fruit, liquorice root, almost an almond sweetness, floral, but with spice and smoky earthy bass notes too. It’s light on its feet, savoury and laced with tobacco, yet almost juicy and fresh too. Acidity is clean and there’s a lovely ‘mineral feel’ to the wine, tannin is graphite and nicely integrated. It doesn’t have the length of the Montefico, or the rugged depth of the Montestefano, but it wins the day with elegance, drinkability and charm, so a bonus point for that. A little orange peel in the aftertaste too, as an afterthought.” 94 points Gary Walsh, WineFront

“La Ca’ Növa remains one of the true undiscovered jewels of Barbaresco. Marco Rocca crafts
intense, classically proportioned Barbarescos full of personality.” Antonio Galloni
Marco’s vineyards are located in the commune of Barbaresco and include the prestigious crus
of Monetefico and Montestefano, two of the best sites that are often referred to as being
‘baroloesque’ owing to their backbone and ageing capability. Located on the Eastern side of the
commune and separated by a few hundred metres, Montestefano is a few hundred metres south
of Montefico and was the first to be bottled as a single vineyard wine, by the legendary Beppe
Colla (of Poderi Colla) in 1961. Montestefano typically combines elegance and richness with a firm
structure whilst Montefico is more austere with bracing tannins. The viticulture is sustainable and the
wines are all made the same way, with 20-25 days of skin contact and aging for 20 months in large
neutral botti. Best of all, they remain great value for money.
