2001 Vietti "Rocche" Barolo

SKU #1164288 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2001 Barolo Rocche is a huge wine. The baby fat has dropped off, while the aromatics are just starting to show signs of early tertiary complexity. There is more than enough fruit and sheer density to allow the 2001 to drink well for another 10-15 years. If opened today the wine needs time. Crushed flowers, autumn leaves, spices and tobacco lead to more exotic notes of orange peel, rose petals and pomegranate. There is no question the Rocche is Vietti’s grandest of grand crus. This is a dazzling showing. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2031. (AG)  (4/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good deep red. Very ripe aromas of cherry liqueur, mocha, chocolate and camphor. Sweet, lush, rich and chocolatey, but with powerful structure. Classic traditional Barolo, finishing with huge tannins that coat the front teeth.  (11/2004)

93 points Wine Spectator

 This is very flamboyant on the palate with wild fruit and sweet tobacco aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy yet refined tannins and a long, fruity finish. This is very well-structured and reserved and there's loads going on here. Best after 2008.  (10/2005)

 South-facing slope just below Castiglione Falletto. Medium greyish garnet with ruby core. Lovely ripe damsons on the nose, with a touch of spice and capsicum. Intense, spicy and tongue-tingling. Full and well-structured. Plenty of sweet chocolately tannins. Big but well balanced by the acidity, not much delicacy. (JH)  (6/2006)
