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.

The 2016 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is a powerful, brooding wine that marries the aromatic top notes of Rocche with the structural underpinnings of Monforte, where Oddero's small strip of vineyards lie. Iron, smoke, incense, dried herbs and flowers give the Rocche stunning aromatic intensity. Deep and structured in feel, the Rocche is another wine in this range that is going to need time to be at its best. Even today, though, it is impressive.
