Barolo, Vigneto Rocche, 2006

1 case
Equiv. £37.50 per bottle

Tasting Note:

From two parcels within Rocche aged 30 and 50 years old. Wherever ‘Rocche’ appears as, or part of, a vineyard name, it implies the vineyard soils have a relatively high sand content, giving floral, silky-textured wines. A seductive, bright and brilliant Barolo, clear juicy red fruits, grippy but elegant. Supremely refined and pure with a bit of sinew to it as well, juicy strawberry, loganberry, cherry, redcurrant and cassis fruit, hints of wild flower and redcurrant jelly too, wonderfully fragrant, subtle delicate yet powerfully intense.
