Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

98 WE / 97+ WA / 17 JR

New leather, pressed rose, underbrush, dark spice and camphor are just some of the aromas you'll find on this extraordinary red. Full bodied, with depth and finesse, the elegant, structured palate delivers ripe Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and tobacco framed in firm fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity provides impeccable balance and aging potential. Drink 2024–2036. Kerin O’Keefe – Wine Enthusiast

Rocche Rivera is a 2.5-hectare parcel inside the Scarrone cru located in Castiglione Falletto with sandy calcareous soils. The celebrated Rocche di Castiglione is located adjacent, and the Pira cru is directly above. Rocche Rivera enjoys an ideal position in one of the best-performing areas of the appellation in this classic vintage. The Figli Luigi Oddero 2016 Barolo Rocche Rivera is stunning, with a level of harmony and purity that makes an immediate and lasting impact. The wine shows pristine fruit aromas backed by wild rose, tar, ash and blood orange. Those aromas hang in perfect balance. The wine is firmly compact and solid in terms of mouthfeel, requiring a few extra years of cellar time to fully unwind. This beautiful 6,000-bottle release will hit the market in October 2020. Monica Larner – The Wine Advocate

Tasted blind. Mid ruby. Savoury nose with still-subdued fruit. Balsamic lift. Subdued on the palate too, with brooding fruit and gripping tannins, the fine acidity coming out only on the finish. A little unpolished, if genuine. (WS) Walter Speller – Jancis Robinson
