Editorial Reviews for Barolo Roc Cast Oddero
Minty and hugely intense out of the bottle, after being opened for 8 hours, with a touch of underlying chicken broth but big tones of black olive, rust, and fish bones. Absolutely succulent in the mouth with deep. rich fruit and a big hoppy/vegetal/floral tones that leads from the mid-palate to the long finish that really resonates with minerality. Tastes of magnesium and rust with the huge reserves of fruit waiting patiently to reveal their full glory. A great wine in the making with intensity and balance. Give it time. 2012-2025 94pts
Iodine and blood! A unique wine - apparently this flavor is typical of that sub-region due to the iron (blood) and fossils (iodine) in the soil acids.
Cherries and powdered sugar aromas. Acidic body, vegetal, very rustic, burnt, quite tannic, with heavy oak, leather, black fruit, and a bit of molasses.
Definitely a unique wine. I was a bit distracted, so didn't give this wine the attention it deserved.
Bright fruit with black berries. Very tannic. Love it!
