Cantina del Bricchetto Franco Rocca 'Albesani', Barbaresco 2017
by FRANCO ROCCA - Neive
“BARBARESCO GRAN CRU FROM A SMALL PRODUCER”
This is another one of the smallest winemakers in Langhe. Franco (also known for his opera singing voice!) is a hardworking family man who takes care of all the vineyards and cellar work by himself! Albesani is one of the grand crus in Barbaresco and he always chooses to come out with the wines later in the market compared to his colleagues. Being small, allows him to release wines when he feels they are ready. This is his current vintage of Barbaresco.
