The 1996 Barolo Vigna Rocche is an excellent wine. In addition to the tar, smoke, dried herbs, leather, and cherry fruit aromas, it reveals a distinctive mineral/powdered rock character. A full-bodied, powerful Barolo that possesses superb richness, a multidimensional personality, and a boatload of tannin, this wine is big and concentrated. There is moderate tannin in the finish, but the fruit and terroir characteristics dominate. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020. (RP)
Parusso's 1996 Barolo Bussia Vigna Rocche has aged well. Dark, powerful and inviting, the 1996 has enough depth to drink well for another decade or so. Black cherry, mocha, plum, chocolate, leather, French oak and menthol build as this voluptuous wine shows off its flamboyant personality. (AG)
Lots of blackberry and violet, with hints of toasty oak. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, delicious finish. Elegant and caressing. (JS, Web only-2007)
