Paolo Scavino Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell'Annunziata 2006
97 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2006 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata is compelling in its open-knit, floral bouquet of freshly cut roses, cherries and raspberries. Sweet, round and perfumed, the wine possesses an appealing combination of elegance wedded to power. Layers of inner perfume continue to develop in the glass, showcasing the unique qualities of one of Piedmont's top sites. This is an immensely promising Barolo from Scavino with several decades of fine drinking ahead. Today the 2006 comes across as more muscular than the decidedly refined 2004. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031. (Feb 2010)
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Forest floor on the nose but lots of blackberry, cocoa and purple flowers. Fresh yet full on the palate. I think this vintage is already unbelievably great!
External Reviews for Paolo Scavino Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell'Annunziata
Just mid ruby with orange tinge. Lifted cherry and oak but much more vibrant on the palate but with the fruit still locked in. Waves of fine grainy tannin. Lovely elegant palate weight and a light creaminess on the finish. Fine and seductive and still very young. 17/20 (WS) Jancis Robinson.
