Last bottle, still wonderful, no new notes:
A copper, pink color in the glass, visually stunning.
Nose has soiled cherry, wet chestnuts, new leather and a touch of cold tangerine peel.
Palate has wet leather, yellow cherry, sour cherry, light chestnut barrel notes and quick squeeze of tangelo.

Terrific rose. Blood orange, tangerine, strawberry, mineral, some Nebbiolo dust as I like to call it. Super earthy and mineral. Really aromatic. Concentrated and substantial but while remaining crest and vibrant. Strawberry, cherry, even peach and super juicy and long. Hint of spice on the finish. Nice body and weight. Good length. — 8 months ago
Nose is just spice and licorice. Palate is awesome. Great medium cherry with licorice and spice. Amazingly fresh and juicy. A great mid week wine. Had it with pasta and sausage and pepper sauce. Bought from Fass Selections Beautifully rustic. Got that Brambly thing going on. Just all sorts of wild berries just picked from prickly bushes. Lingering spice finish. Man this is a great example of what it wants to be. After two hours more perfumey and elegant and less rustic. Like well made st Joseph but less dark fruit and more cherry fruit. Wow. — 3 years ago
This is best bottle of roccia Rossa I’ve ever had. So amazing. Nose of cigar, roses, so so old school. Licorice, mineral, loam, floral. So gorgeous, amazing sweet fruit, red and so pure. Velvety. So complex. Sweet tannins. Spices. Just so firm and insane. Amazing fruit sweet. — 4 months ago
