  • a very modern barolo with all of the characteristics that new oak brings.......this wine is not made from grapes that were ripe, nor over extracted. the wine is dark, oaky (both on the nose and palate), and wreaks of dark cherry. the new oak modifies the varietal characteristics of the nebbiolo, and destroys the fingerprints of terroir as well. all of these modern baroli more or less taste the same. do a blind tasting of 4 and see for yourself. what a shame to take grapes from such a prestigious vineyard and ruin them. is this oak juice or wine? hmmmm? not saying that it is not ok to like this, it's just that you should know what you are drinking and why it tastes the way it does......Nebbiolo is one of the most finessed, delicate, and beautiful varietals. traditional wines made from this grape can be complex and unforgettable. more and more modernists are moving away from new oak albeit slowly and i am all for that. these modern wines came into being so that the wines could be drunk earlier without the necessity of long aging. there is a big trade-off for that..........

  • Another really nice bottle of this and it seems to be getting in the zone. Deep, dark and layered, with notes of dark fruit, tar, some flowery notes, balsamic, some sweet spices, smoke, menthol, also some leather and pine. It‘s full-bodied and rich, with still medium-high tannin (that might be mainly due to the more extracted style here), there is also good medium-high acidity adding freshness. Good length. A very pretty Rocche dell‘Annunziata in this decidedly modern style. Not for everyone but very well made.
