Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell Annunziata Scavino 95ag 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 1996 Rocche dell'Annunziata (3-liter) shows the darker, more masculine side of this wine's personality. It is a deep, brooding Barolo with notes of smoke, tar, licorice and dark fruit that gradually emerge from the glass. Like Scavino's other 1996s, the Rocche is just starting to show tertiary nuances and it promises to offer immensely rewarding drinking for years to come." 10/06 94 Points, Wine Spectator: " Delicious, with loads of rose petal, raspberry and passion fruit on the nose and palate. Full, round and soft, caressing the palate. Very tight and reserved. Just starting to come around.--1996 Piedmont retrospective. Best after 2008. 250 cases made." 2007 - Web Only
