Floral/vegetal notes dominate the nose over an underlay of almost slate like minerality, light note of cherry in alcohol, good freshness 2+ A touch soft yet elegant with an austere character, well balanced and approachable 2+ A touch low intensity on the palate with easy notes of lingonberry/mulberry fruit with a sandy, mineral edge 2+ Tannins grow a bit on the finish, which features pure, light fruit with good length, the tannins offer a bit of a matte, flannel feel to the finish 2+ 88pts

Despite the fact that the Baroli of the Castiglione sub-region are known for being stern and age-worthy, the Rocche vineyard, with its sandy soils, yields softer wines with enticing aromatics. Grown with a southeastern exposure, this one spends thirty months in French oak barrels, followed by a year of bottle aging before release. The wine is garnet in color and reminiscent of small red berries and licorice.
