Wine AdvocatePreviously known as Barolo Rocche, the 2011 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione now boasts the full name of its vineyard designate. It shows profound fruit intensity with dark layers of blackcurrant and exotic spice. The overall effect is enriched, opulent and velvety. A firm tannic backbone is paired to bright acidity to fuel the wine's considerable persistence and its rich structured texture. The beauty of the wine will only improve in time.

Wine SpectatorA mix of elegance and power, featuring cherry, raspberry, pepper, tar and tobacco notes. The tannins are dense and dusty, framing echoes of fruit and briar on the lingering finish. Best from 2018 through 2030. 350 cases made.
