Fletcher Barbaresco Roncaglie Cru 2021


In 2019 David was granted the right to bottle under the Roncaglie cru as opposed to Barbaresco DOCG. David explains that the plot he sources from in Roncaglie is South West facing, a little more shaded so longer hang time & more ferrous soils = Dark fruits, more masculine tannin. Roncaglie is one of the most significant Cru’s in Barbaresco, David considers the site very much a ‘Grand Cru’ of the village.

In Roncaglie you’re starting to build up with more clay and that clay is driving the density of the wine and the structure of the tannins.

100% destemmed. Open ferment. Pressed to barrel. Elevage in old oak, over 10 years old, 300ltr barrels. Barbaresco can only be released on the 3rd January following harvest, giving the wine approx. 27 months total aging. David ages his wines for 24 months in barrel (legally it only needs be 12 as a minimum) then 3 months in bottle. David Fletcher
