Giovanni Sordo Rocche di Castiglione, Barolo DOCG 2011, Italy
PRESS: Wine Enthusiast - 96 points. "Aromas of forest floor, mature berry, dark culinary spice, wild mint and a whiff of violet come together on this impressive wine. The full-bodied palate displays layers of mature black cherry, raspberry jam, licorice and chopped herb framed in bracing tannins and fresh acidity. Even though it seems inviting, give it time to settle down and come together."

Grown on the famous Monvigliero Hill in Verduno, this wine is complex with fruit notes pleasantly mingling with a certain spiciness and aromas of autumn leaves.
Wine with good brightness of colour and captivating shades that endure over time. An ever intense bouquet, rich and lingering with hints of licorice, mint and sensations of ripe fruit. With time, estery sensations develop with hints recalling resin and sweet spices. Full flavour, well structured, marked acidity and tannic weave which evolve and balance out with maturation. Good ageing prospects.
