Barolo, San Rocco, 2018

1 case
Equiv. £67.50 per bottle

Tasting Note:

Deep, earthy and peppery; closed but full-bodied; big and brooding. Compact dark hedgerow fruit, cool earth and a hint of mocha. Dense and tight wound, this is one of the more backward 18s we tasted and needs to be left in peace for a good decade before being approached. An Azelia monopole San Rocco is a top notch Serralunga vineyard that faces south and southwest, where the soils are practically 100% clay, a very hard compact grey clay. The vines are 70 years old. Aged exclusively in large oak botti for two years.
