Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni Piedmont Report,2006 - 94pts
"I was blown away by the supreme elegance of the 1998 Rocche dell’Annunziata. It presents the characteristic open, perfumed nose so typical of Rocche, along with a lovely core of sweet cherry fruit on a medium-bodied frame with outstanding length and fine, silky tannins. Some of the baby fat has melted away and the oak has begun to integrate, signaling that this wine has started to enter its early maturity although it remains quite youthful and packed with plenty of vibrant fruit. It is a great choice for drinking now and over the next ten to or so years. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018."

Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, 2002. 92-95pts
"Saturated deep red. Superripe, liqueur-like nose hints at dried flowers and mocha. Huge, velvety and quite powerful, but still youthfully unevolved. Hints of brown spices and dried flowers. Best today on the explosively long finish, which features strong but well-buffered tannins. A great '98."

Robert Parker Wine Advocate 137, 92-95 pts
The 1998 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata will be an undeniable show-stopper. An exquisite combination of black fruits, coffee, smoke, new oak, licorice, and incense is found in this medium to full-bodied, ripe, elegant, pure Barolo. Explosive aromatics are followed by equally riveting flavors as well as a 50-second finish. The tannin is sweet and beautifully integrated. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2018.
