Barbaresco DOCG Roncaglie - Tenuta Roncaglia

As early as 1880, Roncaglie was already recognized as one of the

best and most important areas for Barbaresco production.

IN THE VINEYARD: Varieties : 100% Nebbiolo

Exposure : southern, Southwesterly

Altitude : approximately between 240 and 280 meters above sea level

Vines planted in : 1970 - 1980 – 1995 - 2010 ; Harvest time : October 5th-15th

Vines per hectare : around 4,000/5,000 ; Wine yield per hectare : around 4,000 liters

CELLAR: Grapes are hand-picked, destalked and crushed; the must successively

macerates on the skins for approximately 12/15 days at a maximum

temperature of about 30° C., and malolactic fermentation ensues, completed before winter.

In the spring, the wine sojourns in oak casks for a period from 12 to 14 months.

Alcohol : 13-14% by vol. ; Total acidity : 5-5.5 grams per liter of tartaric acid

Dry extract : 26-30 grams per liter


Deep, intense ruby-red in colour, with a complex and lively aroma with earthy notes

of blackberry, wild rose and violet. A “classic” Barbaresco that maintains the

underlying elegance of the Roncaglie cru: it is full, pervasive and intense on the

palate. A lovely wine with a strong personality and a very long, final velvet tannin

sensation with great ageing potential. This is a fine wine for the whole meal, finding

its best match in red meats and game birds. Serving temperature: 17-19°C serve in

a balloon glass, we advise decanting very old vintages before drinking to allow them

to breathe.
