Tenuta Rocca Tasting – Ex-Cellar Wine Services presented the wines of Tenuta Rocca. We were fortunate to have Ms. Elena Ercole of Tenuta Rocca on hand to answer our questions about these wonderful wines.
This estate is in the heart of Langhe, at Monforte d’Alba in Ornati Italy. The property encompasses 25 acres, owned by brothers Bruno and Gianna since 1986. The vineyards have been modernized and they are now producing wines truly symbolic of the Alba and Langhe regions. Their hard work has resulted in distinguished reviews by Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, Decanter and Hugh Johnson.
Wines sampled were as follows: 2007 Vigna Sori Rocca Dolcetto d’Alba 2005 Langhe Rosso Ornati 2004 Vigna Roca Neira Barbera d’Alba 2004 Vigna San Pietro Barolo (90pts-WS) 2003 Vigna San Pietro Barolo (92pts-WS)
Thanks to Nuray from Ex-Cellars for bringing the Rocca in!
