Rocche di Castiglione displays elegance, fine tannins, a persistent taste and minerality. It accurately reflects the characteritics of the soil of origin. Its tannins develop from a rugged soil, sandy and calcareous. Ruby red in colour with light garnet reflections, delicate notes of spices and liquorice and a desirable bouquet of red berries. Extraordinarily long finish.
Wine Spectator 94 points - This tightly wound young red shows plenty of cherry, strawberry and raspberry flavors, tinged by spice and tobacco details. Vivid and well-structured, with a dense matrix of tannins. The elements come together on the lingering finish. Best from 2018 through 2035.B.S. (Oct 8 2014)
