Average critic rating : 92.0 points



The 2008 Barolo Rocche is gorgeous. Dark plums, cherries, mocha, licorice and spices are some of the many nuances that come together in the glass. The 2008 is a dark, sumptuous Rocche endowed with lovely juiciness and terrific overall balance. Hints of French oak linger on the close. This is a very pretty Barolo that impresses for its layered, finessed personality. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023. Wine Advocate.April, 2012

The history here dates back centuries, though the estate in its current form dates from the 1970s. Although modern techniques are used, the emphasis is just as much on assiduous viticulture and the results are frequently exceptional.

“The estate's Barolos are made in a sleek, modern style, with 100% new French oak aging. The wines typically require some bottle age to absorb their oak component. In time, the wines always express the qualities of their respective Monforte terrroirs. I have consistently been thrilled with how vintages like 1978, 1982 and 1989 have developed, and only wish I had a deeper collection of the wines in my cellar.” Antonio Galloni
