Vietti Barolo Rocche
Wine Advocate 93 points (Mar 2009)
The 1998 Barolo Rocche shows remarkable clarity and precision in a harmonious expression of the hillside Rocche vineyard in Castiglione Falletto. The 1998 is not a profound Rocche, but readers will have a very hard time finding a wine that offers more pure pleasure in this vintage. This is a great bottle of this wine. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
Geographical location of the vineyard: Rocche of Castiglione Falletto Grape from which it is produced: Nebbiolo - Michet (75%), Lampia (20%), Rosč (5%) Aging: two years in Slavonian oak barrels and one year in bottle. Aging potential: 4 - 8 years, but for special vintages it can be cellared as long as ten - twenty years. Organoleptic characteristics: Color: intense ruby red with tendency toward garnet that with aging takes orange reflections; brilliant. Bouquet: rich, ample and elegant, continuous, from the "goudron" emerges the aroma of violet, dried rose, reminiscence of leather. Taste: complete, austere, elegant. Gastronomy: excellent with roast of red meat, game, typical is brasato cooked in Barolo and then served with the meal; hare "al civet" and generally with all foods having truffles; aged cheeses. Also excellent to enjoy at any hour to relax. Serving temperature: 20°C - 68°F. If it is impossible to open the bottle two hours before serving, Barolo should be decanted in carafe.
