Albino Rocca Barbaresco Ovello Cru Vigna Loreto 2015

The Most Highly Acclaimed Nebbiolo based wine we've ever showcased! ''A finely sculpted Barbaresco endowed with real character.'' Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Awarded: GRANDE VINO from Slow Wine 2019 (Italy) and the Most Highly Acclaimed Nebbiolo based wine we've ever showcased!

"Pretty cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavours define this elegant, supple red. Firmly structured and beautifully integrated, leaving a lingering aftertaste of iron, tobacco and underbrush." 96 Points, Wine Spectator Magazine

''Enticing aromas of star anise, blue flower, wild berry, menthol and a whiff of new leather all come together on this gorgeous elegantly structured red. The full-bodied creamy palate doles out ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, baking spice, licorice and tobacco framed in fine-grained tannins that offer seamless support. It's balanced, with fresh acidity. '' 96 Points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

''Aromas of roses, orange peel and fresh plums. Full body, yet very fine tannins that give this such pretty finesse, tension and form.'' 94 Points, James Suckling

"The 2015 Barbaresco Ovello Vigna Loreto is beautifully lifted in the glass. Even in this warm vintage, the Loreto retains the nerve and tension that are such signatures of this Barbaresco vineyard. Crushed flowers, dried herbs, mint and chalk are all nicely delineated in a precise, finely sculpted Barbaresco endowed with real character.'' 92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

''Of the three single-vineyard expressions of Barbaresco from Albino Rocca tasted this year, the 2015 Barbaresco Ovello exhibits the most defined mineral note and is also my favourite. The bouquet shows dark fruit, spice and herbs. It also delivers a very pretty and defined note of crushed granite. The Ovello is also distinguished by a sweet and more succulent mouthfeel.'' 92 Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate Magazine

''Mid ruby with the beginning of orange tinges. Fine, yet rich cherry fruit nose with a little lift and a hint of oak. Finely balanced, generous mouthful of cherry and red fruit.'' 17.5/20 Points,  Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
