Rose, iris, menthol and mature berry are just some of the aromas you'll find on this stunning, full-bodied wine. On the polished, savory palate, notes of star anise and tobacco accent a core of ripe Marasca cherry while fine-grained tannins offer structure and elegance. Drink 2023–2030.

Bright cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this elegant red, which is firm and vibrant, with refined tannins lending support. There is excellent harmony here, and the aftertaste lingers with a mineral element. Best from 2022 through 2042. 650 cases made, 300 cases imported.

The 2017 Barbaresco Ronchi is terrific. Dark, ample and resonant, the Ronchi envelops all the senses from the very first taste. Succulent red cherry, plum, rose petal, spice, mint and licorice all build as the Ronchi shows off its considerable allure. Readers will have a very hard time keeping their hands off this jewel of a wine from the Rocca family.
