Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell Annuziate Scavino 96ag Premier 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

96 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "In 1999 the Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata is surprisingly virile and potent, with fabulous richness and enough pure intensity to continue to drink well for a number of years. The red-toned, floral flavors are remarkably fresh and vibrant. I find a little more finesse in the Carobric and Bric del Fiasc, but the Rocche dell'Annunziata is undoubtedly terrific. Some of the silkiness and pure sensuality typical of this La Morra site is missing, so readers should expect a powerhouse Barolo here." 08/14 93 Poins, Wine Spectator: "This has loads of ripe berry fruit, offering licorice and fresh herb aromas that turn to Indian spices. Full-bodied, with fresh herb and berry undertones in this big, rich wine. Big and backward for the vintage.—'99 Piedmont blind retrospective (2009). Best after 2011. 250 cases made." 2009-Web Only
