"Pietro Ratti's 2015 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata is the most structured and firmly textured of the Barolos presented in this tasting of new releases. This wine is tight and compact at its core, but it needs a little prodding and swirling of the glass before it hints at the grandeur and the layering of fruit nuances embedded in its very DNA. Just give it time, this wine requires a little extra patience before it fully blossoms. All those beautiful Nebbiolo complexities are hidden just below the surface and will emerge with more bottle aging. Only 5,000 bottles were made."

"This red exudes macerated cherry, strawberry, rose and subtle incense aromas and flavors. Elegant, though firmly structured, with fine balance and well-integrated tannins. Fruit, licorice and spice accents linger. Best from 2021 through 2036."
The single-vineyard Rocche dell’Annunziata is our most elegant, complex and long-lasting Barolo, offering the refined, silky tannins and bright acidity typical of the site. Complex yet delicate aromas of wild berries, juniper and florals offer an intriguing glimpse of this soulful Barolo. The deep, layered palate offers notes of crushed raspberries, red currant, bright red cherry and baking spice before a long, balanced finish marked by fine-grained tannins. Tremendously age-worthy, this Barolo will age beautifully for more than 20 years.
