The 2010 Barolo Rocche is as alluring as it has always been. Yes, it is young. Very young. But its greatness simply can’t be denied. Vivid, precise and nuanced to the core, the 2010 simply has it all. Simply put, the 2010 Rocche is an utterly profound wine that captures all of the nobility of Barolo.
This is a young Barolo that is very aromatic and fresh with dried flowers, plums and light cloves and nutmeg character. Full body, with firm tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Balanced and refined. More linear than the Brunate with more depth this year. Better in 2016.
This balances cherry and raspberry fruit with leather, tobacco and licorice notes. Elegant and tightly wound, with a refined structure holding the elements together. Exhibits fine length, finishing with spice and mineral details. Best from 2017 through 2033. 300 cases made.
