SKU 21807


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.

Wine AdvocateThe 1997 Barbaresco Tenuta Roncaglia exhibits a medium ruby color with garnet at the edge. A classic nose of rose petals, strawberry jam, tobacco, and spice emerges gracefully from the glass. Rich, savory, and fleshy, with sweet tannin, well-integrated acidity, and a moderately long finish, this 1997 should drink well for 10-12 years.
