96 pts. Parker: This
is among Paolo Scavino's latest releases. The 2011 Barolo Rocche
dell'Annunziata Riserva is a profound and generous wine from a hot vintage. The
fruit is opulent and soft with blackberry, dried cherry and dark plum on prime
display. The wine emits clear confidence and quality that is evident in the
intensity and the depth displayed here. Additional layering and complexity is
provided by lingering tones of spice, tobacco, moist earth and white truffle.
This beautifully-crafted Barolo delivers the grace and the inherent
age-worthiness of the La Morra township.
