Cellar/Tasting Notes
The first vineyard purchased in Serralunga d’Alba. This Cru fully represents Luigi’s love for this village.

The vineyard stands on a hill in front of the homonymous church of San Rocco. The clay present in this soil gives the mouth feel of the wine an intense energy. For this reason Serralunga d’Alba is called ‘il corazziere’ (cuirassier, a very skillful and powerful soldier) of the Langhe region. Pertinent to the charactericstic of the terroir, the wine gives an impression of great power, austerity, with an incredible aging potential. The San Rocco presents as velvety and sweetly ripe, with splendidly integrated tannins.
Antonio Galloni- Vinous (AG): 96
"Dark cherry, plum, smoke, menthol, melted road tar and graphite meld together in the 2010 Barolo San Rocco. A big, explosive wine, the 2010 blossoms in the glass with layers of deep, expressive fruit. The San Rocco is usually a wine of volume and breadth, at it is again in 2010. The firm Serralunga tannins are present, but they are also beautifully balanced. I can't wait to see how the 2010 develops. Today, the San Rocco is young, young, young."
