On the nose, this wine is elegant, with complex notes of raspberry, liquorice, and spices. It is full-bodied, powerful, and balanced by the sweetness of the tannins that characterize its lasting impression on the palate. This is a great wine to pair with important, flavorful meals, like meat roasts and cheeses (best if aged).

Wine SpectatorAromatic, with a floral component to the raspberry and cherry notes. Though elegant, this has intensity and builds to the long finish. Tobacco, licorice and mineral accents add depth and dimension. Enticing from start to finish. Best from 2015 through 2032. 850 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastFrom the Monforte d'Alba area of Barolo, this deeply concentrated and rich wine is etched by sharp aromas of licorice, black pepper, red cherry, chocolate, leather and cigar box. The mouthfeel, with its soft, velvety tannins, is particularly pleasurable. Drink after 2015.

Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Barolo Rocche di Castelletto is a very pretty wine laced with sweet red fruit, flowers, crushed rose petals and spices. It shows lovely mid-palate sweetness and depth and fine overall balance. This is a very accessible wine from Monforte, largely because it doesn't have the tannic structure typical of the Barolos of the village. The aromatic and flavor profile is much closer to La Morra, with just a little more depth. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
