Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell Annuziata Scavino 95ag 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "Scavino's 2005 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata is another gem from one of the best-performing vineyards in this vintage. Sweet red cherries, flowers, spices and menthol all come together with stunning definition and purity in this refined, aristocratic Barolo. An eternal finish rounds out this superb Barolo, which is one of my early favorites in 2005. The wine won't be released until 2011 so there is still some time for it to come together, but it is already pretty special." 04/09 93 Points, James Suckling: "This will arrive on the market in 2011. This is a powerful wine with chewy tannins. Perhaps slightly angular. Full bodied and velvety on the palate, but a bit mouth puckering on the finish." 04/12
