Reviews

  • "99 points. A wine of exquisite beauty, the 2010 Barolo Rocche is pure silk on the palate. The 2010 is incredibly dense, dark and powerful for a young Rocche. With time in the glass, the Rocche opens up nicely, showing the full breadth of its potential and pedigree. Stunning in the glass and impeccable throughout, the 2010 Rocche is firing on all cylinders. Sweet rose petals, mint, spices and licorice are woven into the breathtaking, perfumed finish."

  • "96+ points. Deep, fresh red. Knockout primary nose offers strawberry, raspberry, smoke, menthol, tobacco and rose petal. Like liquid silk in the mouth, conveying incredible thickness to its youthful fruit flavors. Powerful salty minerality gives this utterly seamless wine uncanny urgency. Finishes with big, dusty, fine-grained tannins and great length. Currado noted that this wine was racked only three times following the malolactic fermentation. A Barolo classic in the making."
