Pale+ ruby-brick colour. Intense aromas of berries bursting with ripeness, kirsch, licorice, underbrush and fresh cigars. The palate is still youthful with tons of juicy warm cherry fruit countered by a refreshing backbone of high acidity and a firm level of finely grained tannins. A nice combination of power and refinement in perfect harmony. Long spicy finish. Drink now to 2020+. Tasted June 2009. (LPB, In Asia)
The 1999 Barolo San Rocco possesses gorgeous depth and richness. Layers of dark red fruit, smoke, tar, licorice and plums all take shape in the glass in this powerful, beautifully articulated Barolo. In 1999 the San Rocco stands out for its plush, authoritative core of fruit and firm, sturdy tannins. The broad shoulders and pure richness of Serralunga come through in spades. Full tertiary aromas are another few years away, so I would suggest cellaring the 1999 for a little while longer. Still, with air, the 1999 San Rocco is gorgeous today. In truth, the 1999 has been striking since the very beginning. (AG)
Modern, but it still tastes like Barolo underneath its veneer of toast, coffee and coconut. Under the wood beats a heart of tar, molasses and dates nestled in soft, supple tannins and finishing with juicy acidity.
Very attractive nose of blackberry and flowers leads to a full body, with silky, fine tannins and a long, gorgeous finish. Refined and balanced. Hard not to drink now. (JS, Web-2009)
