Albino Rocca is a family vineyard located in Barbaresco, Italy. The family business excists since 1960`s and was founded by Albino Rocca. Four generations later it is in the hands of Daniela, Monica and Paola. The wines produced by them come from four different wine yards where each one can offer different advantages for the grapes to ripen.
Vigna Cottà is a tiny area, producing no more then 15 hl from vines that for the most part are more than 50 years old.
The clay marl soil produces rich, solid and robust wines which marry well with the elegant Nebbiolo.
This vineyard represents the winery the best, because the winery is located on the top of this vineyard.
