Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2012 Barbera d’Alba opens with a bright purple-ruby hue (the wine is aged in stainless steel) and shows thick viscosity with loads of ripe berry fruit. There’s a touch of softness on the finish that helps soften the nervous nature of Barbera. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016  (Jun 2013)

Vinous 89 points - (14% alcohol; done entirely in stainless steel): Good bright medium ruby. Lively aromas of blackberry, black cherry, violet, licorice and fresh herbs. A bit tanky and reduced but juicy and firmly built. Finishes with good cut and lingering sweet dark fruits. -- Stephen Tanzer (Nov 2013)
Producer
Our history starts in the mid 1940’s when Albino Rocca’s father Giacomo started in the wine business initially selling grapes from family vineyards and later making his own wine that was sold in demijohn. Thanks to the inheritance of some of our most precious vineyards in the 1960’s our grandfather was able to start what is now our winery Albino Rocca. Albino’s hard work and his strong support of our father Angelo Rocca laid the foundation that created a family winemaking tradition that has grown internationally over the years. Our history has been built together, year by year. First through the gradual acquisition of vineyards and the production of not only Nebbiolo, but also Dolcetto and Barbera in addition to our continuous effort to evolve the quality of our Barbaresco - which starts in the vineyards and continues in the cellar.
