“Paradoxically, our goal is not to “make” wine, but to guide its evolution to help it best express itself. Our land, not the producer, is inscribed on the wine.”
Leaping ahead to the end of the 1950s, our family history becomes inextricably tied to one of the most celebrated cru of these hills: Rabajà. It was due to the intuition and courage of Francesco Rocca (1907-1978), nephew of the first Francesco, that the family moved from the center of Barbaresco to the zone of Rabajà at its most southern point in 1958.
The land in Rabajà had always been renowned for producing high quality grapes; in fact, they were sold at a significantly higher price than other nebbiolo grapes from Barbaresco.
Further proof of its quality comes from the fact that the community winery to which we sold our grapes in 1967 already bottled them separately under the label “Vineyards from southwest Rabajà.”
