2007 Renato Ratti "Rocche" Barolo

SKU #1136640 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 This thick, and darkly concentrated Barolo offers a wide range of aromas and evident complexity. It boasts a very polished, smooth feel in the mouth that is reinforced by the natural firmness of the noble Nebbiolo grape.  (9/2011)

93 points James Suckling

 Lots of dried mushroom and plums on the nose. Full body, with spicy character, dark chocolate and dried berries. Velvety texture.  (5/2011)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Barolo Rocche is also a huge wine for this site. Layers of dark fruit, spices, menthol and mocha explode from the glass in this large-scaled, expansive Barolo. The Rocche shows marvelous intensity and seamless power from start to finish. Silky, polished tannins frame the dramatic, sweeping finish. The intensity of the mid-palate tapers off just a touch on the close, but that may be a function of the wine’s youth. If the finish fleshes out, the Rocche could very well merit a higher score in the future. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. (AG) 93+  (10/2011)

93 points Vinous

 Good deep red. Redder fruits on the nose than the Conca, accompanied by licorice, spices and earth; very ripe but tight. Then big, rich and ripe but very young on the palate, with a suave texture and considerable finesse to the complex flavors of mentholated dark fruits, spices and chocolate. The huge, mounting finish features velvety tannins and terrific persistence. (ST) 93+  (11/2011)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Sweet cherry and plum flavors pick up a hint of licorice as this gains grip. The finish shuts down as the dense tannins take over. Though not that complex right now, this red is bright and long, with a mineral finish. Be patient. Best from 2015 through 2028. (BS)  (4/2012)
