Ronchi Barbaresco Ronchi Cru 2016

Nebbiolo  |  Italy


95 point cru Barbaresco for under $40? Shut The Front Door! 2016, as we have pontificated about in these pages relentlessly, is one of the best vintages in Piedmont that I have ever tasted in my career. Those who know me well will tell you that I have a bit of a problem when it comes to Nebbiolo, so I don't give a vintage praise like this unless it is warranted. In addition, Ronchi is one of my all-time favorite under-the-radar producers (less so in recent years with all the amazing press they have received). Antonio Galloni agreed in his 95 point review, "The 2016 is a fabulous wine from a property that has been on the ascent in recent years. "

Just a handful of bottles remain, which is nothing short of a miracle!

About the Producer

The Rocca Family's spectacular Nebbiolo wines are still an insider's secret, representing the better values in Barbaresco. The 'Ronchi' vineyard is surrounded by cru 'Montestefano' to the north and 'Moccagatta' to the south. The valley is shaped like a perfect amphitheater, capturing the sun and giving Nebbiolo both the concentration and ripe elegance that is the trademark of exquisite Barbaresco. These magnums are extremely rare and we only have a few of these gems to offer!

95 Vinous -
The 2016 Barbaresco Ronchi, the estate’s top selection, marries elegance with power so well. Freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet red berries, anise and blood orange confer freshness that plays off the wine’s dense, expansive fruit. A rush of sweet raspberry, cherry and rose petal punctuates the exuberant finish. The 2016 is a fabulous wine from a property that has been on the ascent in recent years.
