Bouquet: Ample, elegant and well balanced, with characteristic notes of dried roses and underbrush.
Palate: Full body and perfect balance of components, fruit, tannin and acidity in ideal synergy, lush flavors and pleasing, long finish.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Medium red. Pungent red cherry and rose petal on the nose. Sweet red fruits and flowers show a pliant texture, with a whiff of white truffle adding immediate appeal. This sweet, juicy wine finishes with supple, slightly dry-edged tannins and good length." - Stephen Tanzer (Nov/Oct '11)

92 Points -
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2007 vintage):
"The 2007 Barolo Rapet is a touch fresher and deeper than the Cerretta, with more of the explosiveness and sheer muscle that is typical of Serralunga. This virile Barolo needs another few years in bottle, but it, too, is a terrific effort. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

This is a strong set of new wines from Ca’ Rome’. The 2007 Baroli saw ten days of manual pumpovers and punchdowns, malolactic fermentation in steel and one year in barrique followed by another year and a half in 25-hectoliter casks." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2011)
