2006 Stielle, Rocca Di Castagnoli
Now it was time for the 2006, lets have a go at one bottle.
2006 Stielle, Rocca di Castagnoli
The 06 displays a warm, somewhat mature, round nose with notes of dried cherries, rosemary filled bread dough, warm tiles and a hint of pepper. Very good in a warm, soft style.
The taste is warm and mature with notes of balsamico marinated cherries, gravel, bakelite and dark licorice. Still some tannins in the middle. A fine warmth. Long and fine. Very, very good.
