BAROLO 2009 RISERVA ROCCHE DELL’ANNUNZIATA: 93/100
The nose suggests that this is going to be quite a decadent wine as it conjures up aromas of meat, tar, leather, figs, dried plums and cedar.
Full body and ripe tannins, but there is a fine line of acidity holding this nicely together and keeping it fresh and vivid. A long finish. Drink in 2022.
BAROLO 2014 ROCCHE DELL’ANNUNZIATA: 92/100
What a unique nose of pure lavender, incense, citronella, citrus, spearmint, thyme and dried sage.
The medium- to full-bodied palate is very subtle and focused with tightly wound tannins, loads of floral undertones, good acid drive and a fine finish. Drink now.
LANGHE NEBBIOLO 2014: 90/100
A blue-fruited nebbiolo, showing blueberries, cedar, fresh herbs and citrus.
Medium body, fine tannins and a fruity finish. Drink now.
