2006 Giovanni Sordo Barolo Rocche di Castiglione


Current stock: 1
It takes us by surprise with its intensity, richness and remarkably lingering bouquet . The variety of this cultivar is enhanced and intensified by crisp and elegant sensations, recalling ripe black cherries, blueberries and peach jams. Floral nuances, "mountain hay", liquorice and tobacco enhance the noble tertiary fragrances which have developed during maturation. Hints of undergrowth and fine wood species complete the sensory experience. 

The opening sensation on the palate is warm and mouth-filling. Pronounced yet soft tannins and fair presence of acids enhance the structure of wines that is powerful, rich and well suited to aged for many years. In conclusion, here we have an austere, generous and prestigious wine. The Barolo from this area is very long lived and holds great promise for the future.
