This wine offers aromas of licorice, spices, cherry, currant and blueberry. On the palate, it is fleshy, velvety and ripe, with splendidly integrated tannins. A wine with great power, austerity and aging potential.
93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2014 Barolo San Rocco is very expressive of the Serralunga d'Alba township that always shows darker and denser fruit characteristics compared to the other main growing areas of Barolo. This wine is aged in barrique for two years, of which only 10% is new oak. Your senses are treated to very attractive layers of dark fruit, spice, wet earth and grilled herb. The vines are 60 years old on average and show extra density and concentration as a result. It follows that the mouthfeel is proportionally denser and more structured as well.
92 Points - James Suckling Quite a concentrated wine for this difficult vintage. Shows some richness and grace. The tannins are already beautifully integrated. There's an attractive terracotta character here, as well notes of dried flowers and red cherries.
90 Points - Wine Spectator Sinewy and linear, featuring cherry, plum, eucalyptus and tobacco flavors fused to a firm structure. Chewy finish.
