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. Pair with earthy foods such as stews, game, red meats and strong cheese.

A rich, almost opulent style, this Barolo delivers cherry, raspberry, plum and eucalyptus flavors on a base of stiff tannins. Turns vibrant and chewy, with a solid, minerally finish. Best from 2023 through 2042. 305 cases made, 75 cases imported.

The 2015 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is incredibly inviting from the very first taste. Silky and aromatic, the Rocche shows plenty of the classiness that is such a signature of this Castiglione Falletto site. As with all of these 2015s, readers will have to be patient. The 2015 gains striking volume and resonance with time in the glass, but a few years in bottle are an absolute must for the wine to show at its very best.

Subtle aromas suggesting mature dark-skinned berries, menthol and tobacco mingle with a light whiff of violet. The full-bodied palate offers dried cherry, unripe cranberry, licorice and the heat of evident alcohol alongside assertive, close-grained tannins that leave an austere, astringent finish.
