91–93 pts. : October, 2001

The 1998 Barolo San Rocco’s dark plum/garnet color is followed by a gorgeously fragrant perfume of dried Provençal herbs, smoke, tar, black cherry liqueur, cedar, and soy. Ripe, opulently-textured, full-bodied flavors caress the palate with no hard edges. This hedonistic Nebbiolo fruit bomb possesses plenty of complexity. Drink it over the next 12–15 years.

90 pts. : Nov/Dec 2002

Medium red. Rich aromas of strawberry, underbrush and truffle. Silky on entry, then very ripe and sweet, even a bit decadent, in the middle palate. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and notes of oak char and smoke.
