There are also subtle hints of spice, tobacco, and earthiness that add depth to the aroma profile. On the palate, Albino Rocca Barbaresco offers a harmonious balance between its fruit, acidity, and tannins. The flavors of ripe red berries persist, complemented by savory notes of licorice, leather, and truffle. This wine often displays a medium to full body, with a velvety texture that coats the mouth. The tannins are typically firm but refined, providing structure and ensuring a long and elegant finish.
