Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell Annunziata Scavino 94ag 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: " was blown away by the supreme elegance of the 1998 Rocche dell'Annunziata. It presents the characteristic open, perfumed nose so typical of Rocche, along with a lovely core of sweet cherry fruit on a medium-bodied frame with outstanding length and fine, silky tannins. Some of the baby fat has melted away and the oak has begun to integrate, signaling that this wine has started to enter its early maturity although it remains quite youthful and packed with plenty of vibrant fruit. It is a great choice for drinking now and over the next ten to or so years." 10/06 93 Points, Daniel Thomases, The Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell’Annunziata is the best of the series, very complete in its presentation of the classic range of anisette, rose petal, iris, and red fruit sensations, ample, round, and fresh in flavor, minty and lingering on the close, caressing but solid in texture. It will last another dozen years. " 08/15 93 Points, Wine Spectator: "Plum and dried flowers on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and lots of ripe fruit and fresh herbs. Long, long finish that turns to rose petals. Pretty and complex. Still too young.--1998 Piedmont blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2010. 250 cases made." 2008 - Web Only
