Vietti Barolo Rocche di Castiglione 2012
Ruby red in color. Complex and full-bodied with intense aromas of dried roses, licorice, spice and truffles. Elegant with strong, yet balanced and silky tannins; long and persistent finish. Food Pairings: Hearty foods such as stews, game, red meats and sharp cheeses.
A textbook young Barolo, this evokes cherry, leather, tar, white pepper and iron aromas and flavors, accented by eucalyptus and earth notes. Dense and beefy, featuring a long, sanguine-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2036. 300 cases made.
