"Four generations tell the story of Albino Rocca winery, it is a winemaking tradition that we continue through our own work yet is guided by those who preceded us; our grandfather Albino and our father Angelo Rocca."
"Today, as in the past, we are constantly in search of the highest quality wines that express the characteristics, purity and elegance that are so recognizably linked with the territory of Barbaresco. We want to evolve, while firmly maintaining our roots, so that in every label and bottle you can find those symbols of quality that represent Albino Rocca. The best expression of our business philosophy can be found in our vineyards, which are located in the most noble areas of production of Barbaresco DOCG, which consist of Nebbiolo and also include Barbera, Dolcetto, Cortese, Chardonnay and Moscato. Thanks to the help of Carlo, Angelo’s favorite student, and the care and attention in the vineyards giving respect for each varietal and appellation, and also with the exclusive use of large oak barrels for aging our Barbaresco DOCG, all of these things contribute to the unique characteristics of our wines at Albino Rocca."
