This wine has a deep garnet color with crimson hues. Complex aromas of cherries, raisins, dried flowers, smoky vanilla, and cigar box are apparent on the nose while flavors of red fruits and sweet spices abound on the palate. This is a rich, full-bodied wine with velvety soft tannins and balanced acidity and a long, appealing finish. This wine is best paired with dishes with powerful flavors. Beef, lamb, veal, rabbit and pheasant all wonderfully marry with the deep flavors of this wine. Dishes with wild mushrooms and truffles such as risottos are wonderful companions as well as the deep flavors complement one another beautifully.

Wine AdvocateBrilliant garnet and streamlined in appearance, the 2010 Barolo Bricco Rocche is understated, eloquent and extremely elegant. The magic was lost in the warmer 2009 edition, but the 2010 expression aspires to the highest level of Nebbiolo craftsmanship. This wine is like a musical prelude: Those soft harmonies that build in momentum and volume before the whole symphony begins. Barolo Bricco Rocche needs more time before it reaches it optimal drinking window. It's music to my ears. Drink: 2017-2035.

Wine SpectatorThis is spicy and elegant, with savory notes of tobacco and tar surrounding the core of sweet cherry and licorice. Firm and lean, featuring tea and mineral accents on the finish. Complex and refined overall. Best from 2018 through 2032. 140 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastBlack cherry, red raspberry, oak, espresso, coffee, white pepper and sage sensations take center stage on this tightly wound red. The nervous acidity needs time to soften, and the astringent wood tannins leave a drying finish. Drink after 2020.
