Paolo Scavino "Rocche dell'Annunziata" Barolo Riserva, Piemonte 2007
96+ Points Vinous Media
Though an infant, the 2007 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata caresses the palate with gorgeous, silky layers of red berries, flowers, spices. The wine dazzles with expressive inner perfume and sweet, refined tannins that frame the exquisite finish. This is another head-spinning, hugely promising Barolo from Scavino.
95 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Saving the very best for last, the 2007 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell’Annunziata is a gorgeous expression, with towering varietal characteristics that casts a long shadow. There’s so much going on in the glass: Prune, blackberry, cassis, dried herbs and licorice are beautifully woven together. The wine is firm and crisp in the mouth with perfectly integrated tannins. You can drink this wine in a few years, or decide to keep it for later. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.
