Ronchi Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2018

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2018 Barbaresco Ronchi has a bit more textural depth than the straight Barbaresco, as it often does. Here, too, I would prefer to drink this sooner rather than later, as early signs of maturity are starting to come through. Sweet red plum, orange zest, cloves, new leather and anise build nicely over time. There's terrific weight and overall substance here. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2022)

In Amphoris Langhe Nebbiolo 2019

This is an awesome vintage. No need to decant. More rich than the last vintage and really food friendly. Medium body (not light or tart) with nice tannins that are present to the finish. Great on day two and three. NBI — a year ago

Nose of forest flower and earth and structured body and long complex finish. RC thinks may be going into dumb period. Would buy this producer untasted. Went great with grilled steak. Napa visit at RCs. — 6 years ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2018

Lighter tannins, and softer. But boy does it pack a nose! Dark cherries, figs, leather and wood. Nice long fruity finish. — 3 months ago

9.0

The 2018 Barbaresco is a terrific introduction to the year. Sweet tobacco, licorice, mint, dried flowers and rose petal all grace this ethereal, classy Barbaresco from the Rocca family. Silky tannins give the 2018 tons of up-front appeal and plenty of charm. This is beautifully done. The straight Barbaresco is mostly Meruzzano plus young vines in Ronchi.

Rosario Dolcetto d'Alba 2006

I am not well-versed on Dolcetto with bottle age, but this is amazing. Dried fruit, sweet herbs, anise, and stone. Complex with tannin that is starting to turn grainy, but who can blame it. Much more enjoyable than its youthful relatives. — 8 years ago

Most definitely a food wine. Florals, peach and rich mouthfeel. Not overbearing. Seems to compliment everything. NBI — 7 months ago

9.5

The 2018 Barbaresco Ronchi is another gorgeous wine in this lineup from Rocca. As always, the Ronchi is a Barbaresco of breadth and power. In 2018, those qualities are expressed in a decidedly understated manner. Wild cherry, plum, sage, tobacco and menthol are all kicked up in this super-expressive Barbaresco. Hints of orange peel, spice, star anise and sweet pipe tobacco grace the layered, exquisite finish. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2022)
