Reviews & Scores
Medium red. Complex, lively aromas of redcurrant, cherry, dried rose and tobacco. Dense, sweet and ripe, with a fine-grained texture and good inner-palate energy. Finishes subtle and quite long, with substantial ripe, sweet tannins and a distinctly chewy quality. A very good 2007.
The nose of violets and berries jumps out. Full and juicy, with beautiful fruit and character. Round and soft. Tastes like a fabulous Musigny. Forest floor, dark truffles and ripe fruits.
The 2007 Barolo Bricco Rocche is understated and classy all the way. Freshly cut roses, licorice, new leather, spices and dark red fruit are woven into a rich fabric of notable class. The open, inviting personality of the vintage is on full display. The tannins possess a silky elegance that is simply marvelous. The Bricco Rocche always gets the highest amount of new oak, but it’s hard to see this vineyard being the best suited to that treatment. At its best the Bricco Rocche is an elegant, sexy wine that might respond better to a slightly more delicate hand. Still, that is a fairly small criticism for what is otherwise a fabulous wine. This is a hugely promising Barolo from Ceretto.
