Vietti Barolo Rocche 1998

Vietti Barolo Rocche 750ml 1998     
Sku: 17095

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Oct 2001)
The 1998 Barolo Rocche reveals muscle, volume, and power in its full-bodied, backward yet well-balanced personality. Deep and chewy, with a saturated ruby color, and broad flavors with mouth-coating tannin, it will be at its best between 2006-2020.
