Wine Advocate # 182. Apr 2009. Reviewer : Antonio Galloni. The 2005 Barolo San Rocco screams with the essence of Serralunga in its dark fruit, spices, licorice and sweet French oak. Today the wine is massive, but its inner sweetness occasionally makes an appearance, with pretty balsamic nuances that emerge from behind a wall of imposing tannins. The San Rocco lacks a little polish, but much of that should come with time. I would not be surprised to see this bottle merit a higher score in a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025.
