Rocca Felice

Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2004

#AgedWineTuesday!

Brownish in color with a wide brick rim.

Light nose of blueberries, raspberries, light oak, earth, wet leaves, blood, herbs, black pepper, iron, licorice and spices.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, licorice, light oak, earth, wet leaves, vegetables and black pepper.

Long finish with big tannins, yet fine, and tangy cranberries.

This is a nice surprise. This 16 year old is drinking very nicely now, and has at least 10 years in it.

Showing nice complexity with a nice, soft mouthfeel. The nose is strong and smells like blood, which is interesting.

I loved the intensity of the mouthfeel, but I expected more complexity at this age.

Always interesting to try these kind of wines. Thank you Sean for sharing this with me.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show the complexity.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$50 (current vintage).

Solid mid price Barolo. Plenty of spice with deep tannins. — 2 days ago

Rocca Family Vineyards

Tesorina Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Rare Napa Cab from me to celebrate Joe and Kamala’s big win. Big wine with chewey tannins and light oak which I prefer. Dark fruit with a bit of cigar box going on and a long finish. Major knock is that it’s a hot finish (15% alcohol). All in all not bad. Here’s to hopefully ending these moronic wine tariffs! 🥂 — 21 days ago

Langhe Rosso Nebbiolo 2018

Really delicious and budget friendly Langhe Nebbiolo. (With some Barbera, Dolcetto and Freisa blended in). Plums, cherry compote with vanilla notes that linger. Soft and approachable even though this is such a young wine. Really nice. — 15 days ago
