Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell Annunziata Scavino 93ag 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

94 Points, Wine Spectator: "Very dark ruby. Wonderful aromas of roses, blackberry, violet and licorice. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of juicy fruit. Turns to fresh mushroom on the finish. Balanced and pretty. Just coming around.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Drink now. 250 cases made." 2007 - Web Only 93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The soft-textured, open 1997 Rocche dell'Annunziata (3-liter) is another beautiful wine. Showing plenty of super-ripe fruit, tar and licorice nuances and a lush personality it nevertheless has plenty of underlying structure as well as balance. It is a great choice for current drinking and its slightly more evolved aromas and flavors suggest it will reach full maturity sooner than the other vintages in this flight." 10/06
