93 points Vinous: “Dark ruby. Ceretto’s Bricco Roche shows somewhat evolved notes of tobacco, leather and beef bouillon on the nose. It is rich and dense on the palate, with plenty of stewed fruit flavors in a delicate, classic style. A very beautiful wine with a great sense of proportion, and which is at maturity today.”
92+ points View From the Cellar: “The 1985 Bricco Rocche from Ceretto is an excellent wine and is drinking very well indeed out of normal-sized format. The deep, complex and very classic nose offers up scents of cherries, orange peel, woodsmoke, a bit of roasted squab, fresh oregano, nutskin, a lovely and quite complex base of soil and a deft framing of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and still nicely structured, with a nice base of modest tannin, lovely focus and mid-palate depth, bright acids and excellent focus and grip on the very long, complex and classy finish. This is really a lovely bottle of blossoming Barolo, with just a touch of French wood showing up as cedar on the nose, but no signs of any other cellar treatments that would push it out of the “old school” camp. Fine juice with decades of life still ahead of it.”
