Rocche Costamagna Barolo 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Die grantarote Farbe weist noch intensive rubinrote Reflexe auf. Breit, gewichtig, durchdringend und ätherisch duftend und an Pflaumen und Kirschen erinnernd, gesellen sich feine vanilleartige und florale Noten hinzu. Von mächtiger Tanninstruktur getragen, endet dieser Barolo ausgesprochen lang in Erinnerung bleibend.

On May 15, 1841 the police office of the royal Military Command in Alba granted Luigi Costamagna, son of the estate’s founder Francesco Antonio Costamagna, an official licence “to retail the wine produced from his own vineyards” in La Morra. In 1911, Francesco Costamagna and his son Riccardo were awarded a gold medal at the “Gran Premio dell’Esposizione Internazionale di Torino” for fifty years of winemaking. When Francesco died, his son Riccardo, an attorney, continued to manage the winery with the help of his wife Maddalena. When he died in the 1930s, Riccardo’s wife decided to sell the vineyards located outside La Morra. Wine was produced only for the family’s own consumption and some grapes were sold to other winemakers. In the late 1960s, Maddalena’s niece, Claudia Ferraresi, together with her husband Giorgio Locatelli, restarted the commercial winemaking activity, planted new vineyards and modernised the old winery. Since the mid 1980s their son Alessandro Locatelli has been managing the winery with the help of agronomist Gian Piero Romana and enologist Giuseppe Caviola. Alessandro has improved the vineyards and wine-making techniques, he has been developing customer sales all over the world, and so carrying on the family tradition with passion and drawing on the wealth of experience gathered by the family.

AWE blind tasting --chewing gum and candy apple, wild strawberry in liquor, gains some focus with a touch of gaminess in the background, still a little jammy, light and fresh in the mouth, this feels pretty good with a lean, transparent character, low intensity a bit dilute, nice finish, drying but with nice follow through of savory and subtle fruit tone, 87-88

AWE blind tasting - weird chalk and chicken/fowl nose, sweet smelling, candied nose, with a touch of coffee, thin, poorly knit, shrill, nice finish with some raspberry fruit and with reasonable balance, 82-83

Bouquet mit grosser Komplexität und Aromenvielfalt: Rosenblätter- und Veilchenduft wechseln sich ab mit kandierten Früchten, Feigen und Weichselkirschen, zart unterlegt mit den feinen Röstaromen des Holzausbaus. Am Gaumen zeigt er grosse Eleganz mit herrlich vielfältigen Geschmacksnuancen. Lange klingt er nach und bietet höchsten Genuss in besonderen Momenten. Wir empfehlen, ihn zwei bis drei Stunden vorher zu dekantieren.

A great lower cost alternative to a Barolo or Barbaresco.
