Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

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.

Raisin and spice with hints of coffee cake on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, soft and velvety with plenty of good fruit and a long finish. Rich wine with power for 1999. 250 cases made.

About This Producer

Established in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto, one of the historic Langhe townships, this estate is now entering its third generation of Barolo production. With a historic connection to the land at the forefront of the winemaking philosophy, this estate creates exceptional Barolos, Barberas, and Dolcettos. The Bric del Fiasc Barolo is the hallmark of the family's production, from a vineyard that always produced the best Nebbiolo fruit. In 1978, this fruit was vinified on its own for the first time and it has remained a special bottling ever since.

Wine Varietal: Nebbiolo

Big, dark, and bold, Nebbiolo is a robust variety with heavy tannins and a sometimes bitter profile. While areas outside Italy (Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, California, and South Africa) have begun cultivating Nebbiolo, the Italian region of Piedmont is where it reaches its greatest height. It is here, the historic home to Nebbiolo, where the finest Barolos and Barbarescos are produced. Many winemakers have compared this grape to Pinot Noir for its difficult growing habits and unpredictable cellar and aging behavior. Typical descriptors for Nebbiolo include roses, violets, tar, wild herbs, cherries, raspberries, truffles, and tobacco.
