“More succulence and bouncy red fruit than Montestefano, more playful in a way, along with almond and floral perfume rising up, cool acidity, biscuit spices, kitten’s tongue tannin rasp, and a long and supple finish. Magnificent wine, so brightly lit and delicious. What a great wine this is.” RRP $112 Drink 2022-2036+

"La Ca Nova remains one of the true undiscovered jewels of Barbaresco. Marco Rocca crafts intense, classically proportioned Barbarescos full of personality. “The 2017 Barbaresco Montefico balances the structural framework typical of this site with the radiance of the year so well. Powerful and intensely mineral, the Montefico is a bit wild in its first approach, yet it has so much character. Bright red berry fruit, chalk, mint, sage and white pepper give the Montefico a brilliant upper register to play off its natural cut.”

"I was once again deeply impressed with the wines I tasted at La Ca' Nova this past summer. Of all the estates I visit regularly, La Ca' Nova may very well have the most untapped potential. Readers who have not tasted these wines owe it to themselves to do so".
