This wine exhibits a saturated ruby color with purple nuances. Additionally, it is rich, with lots of extract, tannin, and body. Ceretto's opaque ruby/purple-colored 1996 Barolo Bricco Rocche is sensational stuff. It combines explosive levels of fruit, glycerin, and extract with an uncanny sense of elegance and finesse. There are copious quantities of black cherry fruit, intermixed with raspberries, cedar, spicy oak, licorice, and tar.
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate.
Complex aromas of Indian spices, plum and violet. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Finally starting to mellow. Concentrated and rich.
J.S., Wine Spectator.
Good full red, the deepest of these '96 Barolos. Super ripe, highly aromatic nose combines plum, dark chocolate, mocha, earth and meat; shows a slightly roasted aspect. Very dense and full, with a marzipan sweetness leavened by penetrating acidity. This has chewy extract and superb depth. Finishes with big, rich, chewy tannins and palate-staining, complex flavors of red fruits, torre faction and earth tones.

TASTING NOTES Dark and savory in the glass, grumbling up with notes of crushed rocks...
TASTING NOTES Aromas of French oak, leather and espresso mingle with whiffs of spiced plum....
TASTING NOTES This is at once slightly fresher and a bit more elegant as well...
