"The 2017 Barbaresco Ovello is fine and sculpted, as wines from this cru are, but in 2017 it has an extra bit of weight that really balances some of the natural austerity that comes so easily in Ovello. Crushed red berries, chalk, mint, white pepper and rose petal fill out the layers effortlessly. Vivid and translucent in the glass, the 2017 is incredibly beautiful and so expressive. Drink: 2023-2035. 94 points

This is an impressive set of 2017s from the Rocca family. The estate has been on a roll these last few vintages. Like all 2017s, the Albino Rocca Barbarescos are on the lighter side, but what stands out in the range is a level of site expression that is rare in this vintage. All of the Barbarescos are aged in cask, with the exception of the Cottà, which sees slightly smaller oak because of the tiny size of the parcel."

Antonio Galloni, Vinous (10/20)
