Issue: Issue 7
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.
