Description:

Paolo Scavino Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata 2001
Piedmont
"The 2001 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata is the perfect way to cap off this strong series. The 2001 presents a multitude of aromas and flavors including roses, minerals, smoke, tar and sweet red fruit in a stunning display of sensual elegance. Today it comes across as open-knit and incredibly expressive. It is hard to say if it will shut down at some point or continue to offer the broad window of drinkability that is the hallmark of many wines from this vineyard. Regardless, it is a great privilege to get a glimpse of this monumental wine at such an early stage. If I hadn't already tasted the superb 2004 from barrel I would be tempted to call the 2001 the greatest wine I have ever tasted from Enrico Scavino! Anticipated maturity: 2009-2021." Antonio Galloni for R. Parker, 96 pts. 10/06
