Paolo Scavino Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell'Annunziata 2008

Paolo Scavino Barolo Riserva Rocche Dell'Annunziata 2008

Sku: P59695

From a parcel purchased in 1990 with old vines, the 2008 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell’Annunziata shows a budding sense of maturity and profound beauty. The color is bright and vibrant with brilliant ruby and garnet highlights. The mouthfeel is silky, tight and extremely fine. The wine is dinking beautifully right now and shows the untapped potential of the often-overlooked 2008 vintage. Wines from La Morra usually offer sweeter tannins, and you can feel that here. Drink: 2016-2028.
Marked by beautiful fruit and alluring aromas of black cherry, black currant, violet, spice, tar and tobacco, this holds plenty in reserve. The tannins are dense and assertive, though the lasting impression is one of sweet fruit and elegance. Fine length. Best from 2017 through 2033. From Italy.-B.S.

Vinous / Antonio Galloni 97 Points
"The 2008 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata shows off striking inner perfume, beautifully detailed fruit and gorgeous textural elegance. Sweet red berries, flowers and mint are some of the nuances that emerge from this finely sculpted Barolo. Once again, this is all class and elegance. Rose petals and freshly cut flowers of all sorts reappear on the finish, adding lift and brightness. This is a dazzling showing. Rating: 97+ Points"

Wine maker notes
Rocche dell’Annunziata is the Barolo Riserva of the Scavino family. An historical, prestigious “grand cru” from La Morra village purchased in 1990. Rocche dell’Annunziata is all about finesse, details, weightless elegance. It’s a symphony of ethereal aromas with harmonic motions. Rose petals, violet, lilac, tar, sweet red cherries, mint, minerals are some of the hallmarks of this beautiful cru. In the texture silk veils, layers that overlap with extraordinary grace yet offering intensity.
