Goedhuis, March 2022
A pretty nose of sweet red fruits, fresh rose and savoury notes emanate from the glass. The ripe, fine-grained tannins frame the fruit on the palate and give reassuring structure to the 2018, but the finish is all sweet red cherry and strawberry. Drink 2024-2034.
Antonio Galloni, September 2021,
The 2018 Barbaresco Masseria Roncaglie is a captivating, layered wine full of character. Effusive aromatics make a strong opening impression. Rose petal, lavender, sage, blood orange and red berry fruit all run through this vibrant, focused Barbaresco. The 2018 is charming and nuanced from start to finish. This is the first vintage from a parcel that previously belonged to Socré. It's an impressive debut, to say the least. All this nervy Barbaresco needs is time. Drink 2026-2041.
Situated due northeast of Barolo, Barbaresco's soils are predominantly calcareous marls similar tothe vineyards of La Morra. Barbarescos tend to be lighter and more delicate in style with tannins that are often more textured than its Barolo counterparts. Slightly lower in altitude than Barolo, its Nebbiolo tends to ripen earlier creating some possible vintage variations between the two neighbouring areas. The wines are also released a year earlier.
