Vietti Barolo Rocche 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

After harvesting, the grapes are gently pressed. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel with daily cap submersion for extraction of flavor and color. The wine is then aged for 24 months in casks. The wine was blended in stainless steel tanks 8 months before bottling. Pair with hearty stew, wild game, roasted red meats and cheeses.

This scored 92 from the Wine Advocate and 92 from James Suckling who said "There's focus and beauty to this full-bodied Barolo with pure fruit, walnut and berry character. Round and velvety. Clean finish. Shows wonderful potential. Better in 2018. I like this as much as the excellent 2010."
