Paolo Scavino Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell'Annunziata 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata shows off striking inner perfume, beautifully detailed fruit and gorgeous textural elegance. Sweet red berries, flowers and mint are some of the nuances that emerge from this finely sculpted Barolo. Once again, this is all class and elegance. Rose petals and freshly cut flowers of all sorts reappear on the finish, adding lift and brightness. This is a dazzling showing...97+" AG 04/12

Very bright, full red. Knockout nose combines fresh black cherry, red berries, fruits, minerals, licorice and flowers; reminded me of a darker style of Chambolle-Musigny. Silky, lush and seamless on the palate, with the black cherry and mineral flavors already showing considerable appeal. The tannins arrive very late, allowing this full, broad wine to linger impressively and really perfume the taste buds. There are about 250 cases of this beauty.

From a parcel purchased in 1990 with old vines, the 2008 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell’Annunziata shows a budding sense of maturity and profound beauty. The color is bright and vibrant with brilliant ruby and garnet highlights. The mouthfeel is silky, tight and extremely fine. The wine is dinking beautifully right now and shows the untapped potential of the often-overlooked 2008 vintage. Wines from La Morra usually offer sweeter tannins, and you can feel that here. Drink: 2016–2028.

Marked by beautiful fruit and alluring aromas of black cherry, black currant, violet, spice, tar and tobacco, this holds plenty in reserve. The tannins are dense and assertive, though the lasting impression is one of sweet fruit and elegance. Fine length. Best from 2017 through 2033. 248 cases made.
