DESCRIPTION

 

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec 2002 Full, deep red. A sappy, liqueur-like essence of fruit on the nose; hints at surmaturite Thick, silky and compellingly rich; an utterly seamless, lush wine that coats the entire palate yet somehow avoids heaviness. A dramatic Barolo that finishes with huge, sweet tannins and powerful, vibrant flavors of crystallized red fruits, flowers and camphor. This was the wine of the day at the marathon tasting I did of Barolo estates represented by superbroker Marc de Grazia, though it should be emphasized that it will not be bottled until late 2003. 94-97 points

Antonio Galloni, Piedmont Report, May 2006
Dark ruby. The seductive 1999 Rocche is simply superb. It opens with a captivatingly expressive floral nose that melds seamlessly onto a vibrant palate packed with layers of perfumed dark red fruit and minerals, with exceptional length, fine tannins and a sweet, long finish. Although this Barolo will continue to evolve in the bottle it is nearly impossible to resist today. A recent bottle of the 1990 was youthful and full of life and I imagine that this 1999 will drink well to at least age 20, if not beyond. 95 points
