94+ pts. Wine Advocate:
"The Bruno Rocca 2016 Barbaresco is a gorgeous wine that reveals impeccable balance, ongoing intensity and elegance, which accompany the wine from the start and continue straight through its long finish. The mouthfeel is buoyant and bright, yet there is a solid base of firm fruit and tannic backbone on the close. This is a buttoned-up and firmly etched expression of Nebbiolo from one of the most talented producers in Barbaresco. Great job, Bruno. He knocked out 15,426 of these beauties."
92 pts. James Suckling:
"A very floral offering from this producer, replete with lilacs, tulips and rose petals. Citrus undertones. Medium body, fine, silky tannins and a velvety finish. Drink from 2021."
