The exquisite Langhe Rosso DOC is considered to be a prized possession of the Bruno Rocca cellar. The complex features of this red wine are achieved through a flawless blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Nebbiolo (25%), Barbera (25%) grapes that are grown in different vineyards of Piedmont region. These three different types of grapes are harvested at juxtaposing intervals, depending on the time of ripening, but the fruits are always collected manually. The maceration takes place in stainless steel tanks where the juice stays in full contact with the skins and seeds for eight to 12 days in order to intensify the aromatic and color components. At the end of maceration, the fermented and blended liquor is aged in French oak barrels (60% new and 40% old) for 12 months. Achieving full maturity, the scarlet-colored wine is bottled to become your splendid companion.
