Vietti, 2013 Vietti Barolo Rocche di Castiglione DOCG

"The 2013 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione (once simply named Rocche) is a richly endowed expression of Nebbiolo. The wine boasts dense fiber and texture with exquisite aromas of dark fruit and spice. The wine is not obvious in any way, and it offers new sides and aromas each time you return to the glass. Subtle tones of campfire ash, licorice and balsam herb are neatly woven within the broader bouquet. I tasted this wine from two separate bottles and was impressed by the near-term evolution of both. The wine shifted and changed beautifully as it sat in the glass for a mere 15 minutes."
