Vietti Barolo Rocche 2009

Vietti Barolo Rocche 2009

Sku: 042853

 Wine Spectator 93 points (Nov 27 2013)
This is elegant and sinewy, offering rose, cherry, red berry, eucalyptus and licorice notes. The tannins are aggressive and firm, yet this remains balanced overall, finishing very long. Needs time to integrate. Best from 2017 through 2030.B.S.
