Review: 2006 Tenuta Rocca Barolo DOCG

Tenuta Rocca’s Barolo has one thing going for it that almost all other Barolos lack: Affordability.

At just $35 a bottle (on deep discount), you’re getting top, DOCG-level quality at a price cheaper than most mid-grade California Cabs.

Oh, how does it taste? Great. While initially restrained, a few minutes in the glass opens up the wine, revealing intense fresh herbal notes — rosemary and thyme — plus a fun licorice kick in the end. The body is full and round without being flabby. While so much Italian wine can come across as tough, astringent, and bitter, this is a Piedmontese vino (based on Nebbiolo grapes, in case you’re wondering) with rare and exceptional balance.
