Winemaker's Notes

Ruby red colored. Full-bodied and complex with intense aromas of dried roses, liquorice, spices and truffles. Elegant with strong tannins, balanced, silky, with a final long lasting.

Critical Acclaim

"Vietti's 2007 Barolo Rocche is shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage. The bouquet alone is transcendental. The voluptuous, classy Rocche shows off endless layers of fruit in an exciting and totally alluring expression of Nebbiolo. The wine seems to float on the palate, as the essence of geraniums, red berries, hard candy and minerals conquer all of the senses. Fine, silky tannins frame a finish of breathtaking beauty. The Rocche spent a full 5 weeks of contact on the skins. Like all the Vietti Baroli, malolactic fermentation was carried out in French oak after which the wine was racked into large, neutral casks for aging. The 2007 Rocche is the very finest wine I have ever tasted from Vietti. I only hope Alfredo Currado had a chance to taste this at least a few times before he passed away last year. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2032. "

"Good full, bright red. Knockout perfume of raspberry, dried rose, cocoa powder and brown spices. Like liquid velvet in the mouth, but with terrific floral lift and an almost weightless impression to the flavors of cherry, minerals, spices and wild herbs. Incredibly perfumed, palate-staining finish leaves the mouth vibrating. Really compelling subtle sweetness here, not to mention grand cru class. "

"This tight-fisted red shows a firm grip of tannins surrounding menthol, black cherry and tea flavors. A bit tough and dry on the finish, but vibrant and long. The sweet fruit returns on the aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2028. 366 cases made."

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
