Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell Annunziata Scavino 97ag 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

97 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2004 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata has developed beautifully since I last tasted it a few years ago. That said, I am amazed how bright and primary the fruit still is. Sweet, perfumed aromatics lead to a core of silky fruit as this elegant, pedigreed Barolo emerges from the glass. The tannins are exceptionally refined all the way through to the finish, while the French oak is virtually imperceptible. What remains is a gorgeous, fruit-driven Barolo that captures the essence of the Scavino style at its best. The wine should enjoy a long drinking window to age 25 and quite likely longer." 02/10 94 Points, Wine Spectator: "Beginning to shed some of its tannins, this is mellowing nicely, exhibiting rich cherry, raspberry, spice and tobacco notes. Supple in texture, showing just enough grip to keep its focus, with a lingering tobacco finish. Best from 2013 through 2027. 450 cases imported." 04/12
