Barolo Riserva Rocche di Castiglione

D.O.C.G.

The vineyard is located in one of the most suitable areas in the municipality of Castiglione Falletto. 

The colour of this wine impresses us with its splendid combination of garnet and ruby reds which fill the glass with light. A perfectly brilliant wine leaving viscous “legs” on the sides of the glass. Its alcoholic strength is expressed by an abundance of “church windows” and tears.

It takes us by surprise with its intensity, richness and remarkably lingering bouquet. The varietal characteristics of this cultivar are enhanced and intensified by crisp and elegant sensations, recalling ripe black cherries, blueberries and peach jam. Floral nuances, “mountain hay”, liquorice and tobacco enhance the noble tertiary fragrances which have developed during maturation. Hints of the undergrowth and fine wood species complete the sensory experience. 

The opening sensation on the palate is warm and mouth-filling. Pronounced yet soft tannins and a fair presence of acids enhance the structure of a wine that is powerful, rich and well suited to being aged for many years. In conclusion, here we have an austere, generous and prestigious wine. The Barolo from this area is extremely long-lived and holds great promise for the future.
