Tre Bicchieri - Gambero Rosso
95+ Points, Gary Walsh – Tip Top Tipple, “All the Rocche perfume – floral with raspberry, cinnamon perhaps, a slight smokiness and earthy character. Succulence of red fruits, rosy mouth-perfume, stony feel to tannin, an almond sweetness, and pleasing grip on a very long finish. All the character of the vineyard here, in a vibrant and clean framework. They’ve delivered a beautiful wine in 2017.” Drink 2022-2037
96 Points, Stephen Blandford – The Real Review, “Bright ruby colour. Fragrant raspberry and just ripe plum aromas, dried flowers, bouquet garni and fennel with a discreet coating of vanilla/mocha oak. In the mouth it is sleek and elegant with juicy berry fruit, blood orange tang, warm spice and a fan of filigree tannin leading to a gently lingering finish. So, so good.” Drink 2024-2039
