This Barbaresco has the typical garnet red Nebbiolo color and floral, fruity notes. In the mouth it has an invigorating freshness, is finely woven and tightly structured with well-balanced tannins and a hearty finish. The wine is ready to drink immediately and for the next 10+ years.
The La Ca Növa winery is located directly at the entrance to the municipality of Barbaresco. Marco Rocca, the owner, produces uncomplicated, classic wines. For years he has been growing organic wine. He is a very modest man who carries out the daily work in the vineyard with great experience and consistency. He thus creates the conditions to be able to produce grapes of optimal quality.
The grapes are harvested by hand in October and then immediately destemmed and lightly pressed. The fermentation follows in open wooden vats for a maximum of 20 days. Maturation then takes place in large Slovenian oak barrels, as is the tradition. A six-month bottle storage then completes the maturing process.
Food Pairing Notes
It goes very well with white meat, lamb or risotto.
Barbaresco can only be produced within 1265 acres, and a maximum of 85,000 cases per year can be produced from the more than 500 growers. It is separated into four different communes of which three dominate, Barbaresco, Neive and Treiso. Angelo Gaja is perhaps one of the best known producers in the wine world, let alone Barbaresco, lives in the village. Recent technological and viticultural advances have made the wines more consistent, deeper in color and more flavorful. A wine of great perfume, the classic nose is "tar and roses", and complexity.
