La Ca’ Nova Barbaresco Montefico Vigna Bric Mentina 2015

$104.00

“La Ca’ Nova Barbaresco Montefico Vigna Bric Mentina 2015. Quiet authority here, but what strikes me most is its line and length, which really sets it apart. Cherry, earth, almond and a smoky dried herb perfume. Medium bodied, beautiful fine line of acidity, supple brick dust tannin – structure is great – yet flavour is not compromised. Perfume and ‘minerality’, and that finish is something else. Such energy and charisma. Marvellous.” 96 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.
