Wine SpectatorA mix of cherry, menthol, tar and aromatic herbs, this red is rich and intense, with a solid base of tannins. Licorice, mineral and spice notes come into play as this expands on the tightly wound, almost chewy finish. Shows fine balance and length. Best from 2018 through 2035. 250 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata shows a subdued personality that builds in momentum as the wine warms in the glass. There's a strong berry theme here that recalls creme de cassis or dried raspberry at the front of the bouquet. Close behind are oak-driven tones of spice, leather and tobacco. The wine bursts forward with youthful intensity and needs more time to start its natural evolution. Drink: 2018-2027.
