"In the region of Piedmont, nestled on the ridge of a hill in the town of Barbaresco is the ancient home and vineyards of La Ca Nova. Here three brothers, Pietro, Giulio, and Franco Rocca, give meaning to the fruit of their labors by producing some of the most beautiful Barbaresco available in the world today. The vines are cultivated with competence and love by people who feel close to the land; a time honored tradition dating back through generations. They are particularly selective in their methods of cultivation and do not expose their grapes to any chemical treatment. Their cellar, while equipped with the most modern of wine producing techniques, is nevertheless built deep under the ground far from any noise or motion, where the temperature is stable. Barbaresco must age a minimum of two years, one of which must be spent in oak barrels. The wine must then settle to develop its finishing touches in the bottle, so the bottles then spend long, quiet months, or even years, in the farthest corners of the wine cellar. Pietro, Guilio, and Franco give meticulous care to every step of the way to their final objective. Only the highest quality Barbaresco deserves the Rocca brothers' "La Ca Nova" label. "La Ca Nova" also produces a Barbaresco Estate Bottled wine, a "Montestefano" Cru and a "Bric Mentina" Cru. All these wines are a triumph of experience and emotion. The color is a mellow red garnet which shades out to burnt orange near the sides of the glass. The fragrance is a mixture of fresh fruit and flowers with rich spices. Its refined flavor captures the praises of the most critical and demanding of the modern connoisseurs. This Barbaresco is a regal companion for any meat dish as well as for cheese dishes. Uncork 2 to 3 hours before serving - serve at room temperature." -Importer
