This wine is garnet red in color.
The bouquet is delicate and persistent with traces of licorice, rose and tobacco.
Full flavored, warm and moderately tannic.
A great wine for red meats on the spit or grilled game, as well as white meat dishes and aged cheeses.
"This thick, and darkly concentrated Barolo offers a wide range of aromas and evident complexity. It boasts a very polished, smooth feel in the mouth that is reinforced by the natural firmness of the noble Nebbiolo grape."
"The 2007 Barolo Rocche is also a huge wine for this site. Layers of dark fruit, spices, menthol and mocha explode from the glass in this large-scaled, expansive Barolo. The Rocche shows marvelous intensity and seamless power from start to finish. Silky, polished tannins frame the dramatic, sweeping finish. The intensity of the mid-palate tapers off just a touch on the close, but that may be a function of the wine’s youth. If the finish fleshes out, the Rocche could very well merit a higher score in the future. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
The Wine Advocate
"Good deep red. Redder fruits on the nose than the Conca, accompanied by licorice, spices and earth; very ripe but tight. Then big, rich and ripe but very young on the palate, with a suave texture and considerable finesse to the complex flavors of mentholated dark fruits, spices and chocolate. The huge, mounting finish features velvety tannins and terrific persistence."
International Wine Cellar
"Lots of dried mushroom and plums on the nose. Full body, with spicy character, dark chocolate and dried berries. Velvety texture. Best after 2014. "
