Albino Rocca’s Dolcetto d’Alba is drawn from a single vineyard in Barbaresco, a very serious location with a first-rate, east to south-east exposure for the most part. The vines are 30-40 years old, and thanks to their maturity and the sensible yields they offer, this wine displays more intensity and texture than many a garden-variety Dolcetto D’Alba. This is reared only in tank to preserve purity and, like the other Rocca 2018s, shows the strength of the vintage–with loads of pure, juicy, red cherry and cranberry fruits and a vibrant, punchy close. Terrific value.
