Commentary: Roncaglie is one of the registerd cru of Barbaresco (Menzione Geografica Aggiuntiva). Socré vineyards are adjacent to Sorì Tildin and Costa Russi. This version shows lovely floral notes, along with subtle earthy aromas intermixed with licorice root and wet leather; in the mouth is warm, silky and very long. A gourgeous Barbaresco
