The 2006 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione shows wonderful richness, density and inner perfume in its dark red fruit. It is a surprisingly muscular Barolo from this site, with terrific balance and plenty of depth to support many years of cellaring. Floral, spiced notes are wrapped around the long, sensual finish. With more time in the glass, the open, perfumed quality of Rocche comes through even more clearly. To be sure, this remains a powerful, austere wine in need of significant time in bottle, but it is highly promising. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2036.
A firm, chewy style, loaded with cherry, licorice, sandalwood and resin aromas and flavors. There's nothing fancy here, just full-bore, straight-ahead Nebbiolo. Needs time.
Oddero is one of the most important historic brands in the Langhe and the Rocche di Castiglione Barolo highlights this legacy very nicely. The wine is redolent of wild berries, plums, spice, white truffle and cherry liqueur. It’s an elegant, tonic wine with a garnet and amber coloring.
