Barolo DOCG Rocche di Castiglione, 2011



Grape Varieties: Nebbiolo

“Previously known as Barolo Rocche, the 2011 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione now boasts the full name of its vineyard designate. It shows profound fruit intensity with dark layers of blackcurrant and exotic spice. The overall effect is enriched, opulent and velvety. A firm tannic backbone is paired to bright acidity to fuel the wine's considerable persistence and its rich structured texture. The beauty of the wine will only improve in time.”                             Robert Parker: 94 points , James Suckling: 95 points, Wine Spectator: 93 pointsVinous by Antonio Galloni: 92-95 points, Jancis Robinson: 16.5 points
