    The 2013 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata is powerful and dense in the glass. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2013 is going to need a few years to soften. When I think of Rocche dell'Annunziata, I think of Barolos built on perfume and elegance. I don't see much of that here, at least in the early going. This is an especially extracted style. Hints of red plum, mocha, wild flowers and spice add nuance over time, but the 2013 is not ready yet to show all of its cards. Drink 2023-2040.

    The 2013 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata Riserva was released in January of 2019, and once again it looks to be a top prize. Licorice and flowers dominate the bouquet, and its beautiful red fruit is generous throughout. This wine has always been a beauty and consistently has had a high price tag to reflect that quality, going back to the first vintages of the 1990s. It has regularly sold for about $200 every year for the last decade. These vines are old, some of them very old (reaching the ripe age of 60 years old in 1990s, when many of them were replanted with carefully selected clones), producing an elegance and concentration that brings intensity and a high standard of aromas. This Barolo without a doubt shows its pedigree and a quality of noble perfumes that demonstrate characteristics of the greatest Nebbiolo vintages, all delivered with excellent concentration. The magic lingers on the palate, right up to the finish. Drink 2021-2048

    Pale-medium, slightly opaque garnet. Nutty, spicy oak, over ripe red cherry and dried thyme, with early stages of old leather and dried tobacco development. Compact, high, chalky tannins that are not close to ready, but enough density of flavour that should allow these to melt and come into balance. Long. (TJ) Drink 2028-2045

Producer

Paolo Scavino

Paolo Scavino is one of Barolo’s great estates, making seriously good, benchmark Barolo from their small winery in Castiglione Falletto. As Kerin O’Keefe notes, this small, family-run producer “makes superlative Barolos from some of the greatest crus in the entire denomination”. Paolo Scavino is the region’s great innovator, alongside Elio Altare, and has been instrumental in elevating Barolo’s reputation. Winemaker Enrico Scavino combines a traditional approach with more forward-thinking techniques to produce instantly likeable wines that do not need decades in the cellar to soften. As you can imagine, quantities are limited.

Region

Barolo

With Brunello in Tuscany, Barolo is undoubtedly Italy's finest wine producing region. Located in Piedmont in the north west of Iataly Barolo is comprised of 5 major communes - Barolo, Monteforte d'Alba, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d'Alba - though the latter three tend to represent the main styles of the region. The wines are compelling and polished - an exemplary expression of the Nebbiolo grape. DOCG law requires a minimum ageing of 2 years in cask or barrel yet can be longer depending on the producer. Barolos are generally released four or more years after the vintage.
