Wonderful perfume of dried rose and spice, some dried herb too, ripe raspberry and cherry, silky and slate-y tannin, full ripeness but controlled and tethered. It sits somewhere around medium-bodied, feels svelte and refined, and goes long. Classic Rocche, and Monchiero with it - Gary Walsh

Huon Hooke

Medium-depth red colour with a purple tinge, the bouquet reserved and shy, very earthy/dusty and savoury, with brick-dust and dried porcini nuances. The palate is very powerful and full-bodied, loaded with tannin and concentrated flavour, classically savoury and persistent. Blackberry confiture buried deep in a shroud of tannin. Excellent Barolo. Long-term

James Suckling

Aromas of sweet tobacco, strawberries and bark follow through to a medium to full body with ultra fine tannins that are melted into the wine. Such beautiful depth and subtle intensity. Better after 2023, but already a beauty

“Wonderful nose, vivid red fruits with floral notes. So much fruit on the palate, sweet autumnal notes supported by vibrant acidity and purity of fruit. Well-managed chalky fine tannins.” Alistair Cooper (MW) – drink 2022-2032
