Paolo Scavino Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata Riserva 2016
Winemaker Notes If Bric del Fiasc is the king of the Paolo Scavino cellars, Rocche dell'Annunziata is the queen: a riserva always of great elegance. A wine that is enticing, complex, and extremely fine. Produced only in the best vintages, the fruit comes from old vines planted in 1942 and, since, has been meticulously cared for in a traditional way.

James Suckling 100 Points Wow! There’s so much going on here. The nose presents an intense mix of dried cherry and red-berry fruit and rose petals, together with mild spice, Mediterranean herbs, tobacco-dried apricot, and dried and fresh nuts. Much more if you dig in. A full-bodied, super-relaxed palate that is the perfect display case for all the complex fruit characters. The tannins are dense but seamless, never displaying any angular edge. Super-long and super concentrated, this is hard to fault. Yet, despite all the seeming extravagance, it remains a composed red with a long life ahead of it. Drink at your leisure.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 98 Points This is a stunner. The Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata is a beautifully balanced and memorable wine that will continue to delight for years to come. It is compact and silky in texture with abundant and very lively aromas of dark fruit and wild cherry. The Rocche dell'Annunziata vineyard is located in La Morra. This is a gorgeous wine that awards lots of emotion. Best After 2024
Wine Spectator 97 Points A vibrant, linear, and firmly structured red, it evokes cherry, raspberry, sun-kissed hay, and licorice aromas and flavors. This is intense and builds to a long aftertaste of fruit, licorice, and mineral notes, showing terrific balance and precision. Best from 2024
