Vietti Barolo Rocche 1998

Vietti Barolo Rocche 750ml 1998     
Sku: 17095

Rating
 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.
