Rocca Giovanni Barolo 2015
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
A bit monolithic, this red features plum and black cherry fruit, backed by a dense matrix of grainy tannins. Eucalyptus, leather and earth notes add depth and savoriness as this converges on the resonant finish. Has energy, but needs time. Best from 2023 through 2043. 790 cases made, 350 cases imported.
This opens with aromas of dark berry, camphor and scorched earth. The bright palate delivers black cherry, licorice and aromatic herbs alongside austere tannins that leave a firm finish. Drink 2023-2029.
