Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell Annunziata Scavino 97ag 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

99 Points, Wine Spectator: "The nose is pure, freshly crushed berries and cherries with lilacs. Full-bodied and very, very concentrated, with big, ripe, powerful tannins, but it's all in harmony and length. Layers of fabulous fruit. It's just a baby. Wait and watch it grow up into something amazing." 10/06 99 Points, James Suckling: "What a wine. A deep and powerful wine with a full body, super silky tannins, and a lengthy finish. The power is mind-blowing, reminiscent of something like a 1998 Cheval Blanc, but better. This still has some life left in it. Check back in 2015." 04/13 97 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2000 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata is another exceptional Barolo. Impossibly fine, silky tannins support sweet red cherries, raspberries, rose petals and spices, all of which come together in the open-knit style that is typical of this great site. This, too, is another fabulous Barolo from Scavino." 06/11 92 Points, Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Center: "Full, deep red. Aromas of plum syrup, strawberry, mocha and mint; more decadent than the 2001 but still fresh. Thick and sweet on entry, then a bit less chewy and dense in the middle than the 2001, without that wine's mineral lift or black fruit character. Strong, plump wine if a bit unrefined. Finishes with more noticeable tannins than the 2001." 11/04
