Situated at 350 meters, the vineyards for Rocche are among the highest in Castiglione Faletto. The soils here are light and sandy, making this wine the most elegant of the group. The unique character of this vineyard has historically been prized as one of the best in the region for producing wines of finesse and character, and the 2013 follows suit perfectly. This is the leanest of the four crus, and its high-toned fruit offers an airy purity that makes the fruit really jump. Not massive or overly fruity, there is nonetheless plenty of density here. Rocche is also the least tannic of the group, which enhances its more pure and cerebral character.
