Winemaker Notes

Ruby red in color. Complex and full-bodied with intense aromas of dried roses, liquorice, spice and truffles. Elegant with strong, yet balanced and silky tannins; long and persistent finish.

Drink with hearty foods such as stews, game, red meats and sharp cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Barolo Rocche shows the best balance of fruit and structure among the 2008 Baroli. Sweet,silky tannins frame expressive dark red fruit in the 2008 Rocche. This is an especially structured, powerful style for the Rocche, and a true testament to the level of conviction at Vietti. The Rocche turns sweeter and more sensual with time in the glass. The tannins possess remarkable finesse. This could be used to teach a class on the greatness of the Rocche vineyard. It is dazzling from start to finish. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033.

Wine Spectator

Appealing aromas of flowers, cherry and raspberry take on tobacco and leather flavors as this crosses the palate. Rich and round, with a supple texture, this is firmly structured, offering a fine aftertaste of fruit and mineral. Will need time to unwind.

International Wine Cellar

Bright red with a palish rim. Noble Rocche aromas and flavors of strawberry, dried rose, brown spices, mocha and menthol. Delicate and refined but a bit lean, with strong acidity giving the mid-palate terrific cut and juiciness. Finishes long and scented, with big, dusty, slightly drying tannins. Forget this wine for at least six or seven years.

His most significant achievement was to transform the family farm, engaged in many fields, into a grape-growing and wine-producing business.
