Quick Facts

La Ca Növa produce a Barbaresco "normale" of great quality. It possesses sweet fruit and ripe tannins yet stays true to its origin. The fact that it arrives at a bargain price considering its high quality makes it a staff favorite at Brix Wine.

The Wine’s Story

Barbaresco comes in many shapes. You have the super-exclusive versions wrapped-up in toasty oak, and you have the complete opposite, aka sadly bland wines not even carrying a shadow of a great Nebbiolo. Well, we’re happy that we stumbled upon Marco Rocca at La Ca Növa, as his wines represent stunning quality at bargain prices across the board. Marco’s Barbaresco is a seductive Nebbiolo, true to its origin and if this sturdy variety ever can be described as “feminine”, then this is it.
