Musky and smoky on the nose, this almost shows some flint along with the wild herbs and a very clear, slightly antiseptic tone all over a base of lingonberry jam. Smooth and broad in the mouth, this is a touch loose up front. Zesty acids kick in along with the liquory red currant fruit, spice notes, wild raspberries and a little mint that lingers on the long, limestone-driven finish. A lot of potential here. 92pts

Liquory red cherries in alcohol and sandalwood aromas along with a nice shading of wild sage and fine raspberry notes lend this a very classic bouquet. Downright opulent and soft on entry before the very fine, ripe tannins kick in to lend a little spice to the very transparent palate. That savory spice edge adds some complexity to the red fruit here and the bright acids keep this nervous in the mouth. Fine length on the finish shows this to be another wine with super ripe tannins. 90pts

Medium red. Classic medicinal Barolo aromas and flavors of black cherry, licorice, sage and wild mint. Then perfumed and elegant in the mouth, with a fine-grained texture and light touch. Really vibrates on the long finish, which features very fin... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 F Ili Brovia Barolo Rocche 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

"An open, floral nose announces the 2008 Barolo Rocche. This is a surprisingly steely, intense Rocche with little of the early appeal this wine usually offers. Instead, readers will find a structured, inward Barolo that should develop handsomely for at least two decades. A hint of feminine, Rocche sensuality emerges on the finish, but readers are best served cellaring this beauty for at least a handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028...96" WA 10/12
