An extremely fine and elegant wine from one of the great vineyards of Castiglione Falletto. The color is garnet red with light orange colored reflections. The nose is balanced and intense with violets, strawberries, prunes, cherries, mint, woody essence, licorice and some balsamic notes. The taste begins slowly, but it grows incrementally until coating the palate.
This wine can combine with every dish (except sweets) going particularly well with meat dishes and dry mature cheese.
"The 2007 Barolo Rocche emerges from the glass with freshly cut roses, sweet berries and spices. The Rocche is always the most open of Brovia’s single vineyard Baroli. In 2007 the wine has an extra dimension of textural richness that makes it incredibly appealing even at this young stage. Floral notes reappear on the silky, pure finish. This is a fabulous showing, but the wine will be even better in a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027."
The Wine Advocate
"Good fresh, full red. Ripe currant and plum aromas lifted by a strong violet quality. Sweet, silky and light on its feet, with terrific energy and lift to the fruit and floral flavors. Wonderfully fine-grained Barolo, finishing with suave tannins that coat the front teeth. For all its early appeal, there's excellent medicinal reserve here as well."
