Rocco di Carpeneto Rapp

Italian Barbera goodness

Blissfully tannic, this wine will wrap your mouth in dried-fruit Italian Barbera goodness. Lots of blue fruit, like blueberries, blackberries, and prunes. ‘Rapp’ in the regional dialect of the second half of the nineteenth century, means ‘bunch of grapes,’ which nicely describes the natural fruit freshness of this wine. The wine has no added sulfite.

Our Best Advice

Serve with food

Delicious With

Surprisingly good with cumin, lentils, and saffron potatoes. Also classically pairs with steak, or any rich dark meats, mushrooms, herbs, herbaceous cheeses like blue cheese, higher tannin foods like root vegetables & braised greens. The idea here is that the bright acidity in the wine will make a rich fatty or high tannin dish complete.

Their Cred

Rocco di Carpeneto is a radical, organic winery located on a small plateau amidst the Upper Monferrato hills, i.e. the closest to Mediterranean sea part of Piedmont. Wine production is strictly devoted to Piedmont-native grapes (cortese, barbera, dolcetto, freisa, albarossa, nebbiolo) grown in old vineyards — mostly planted between 1955 and 1986.
