Albino Rocca Barbaresco Angelo 2018
93 POINTS: Wine Enthusiast
"Iris, wild berry and sandalwood aromas form the nose. The savory, elegant palate offers sour cherry, orange zest, licorice and coffee bean alongside taut, fine-grained tannins."
— Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast
The Albino Rocca Barbaresco Angelo is named in honour of the great Angelo Rocca, and it's a great wine to dedicate to someone special.
With an enticing mix of red fruits on the nose, it has amazing fruit sweetness yet is completely dry. The palate shows a medium body and softness in the mouth, again with red fruits and lots of grippy tannin. While it comes from a trickier vintage, it is a lovely wine that is drinking well right now.
With a bit more bottle age, it will develop more tertiary characters such as leather, cigar box and dried fruit, while the tannins will soften.
