Considered a Grand Cru of the commune of La Morra. It’s completely South facing and is typically the fullest and ripest tasting of Renato Corino’s wines. It’s usually delicious when young, but this is a bit more reticent and closed than in some years. I think that’s no bad thing and a reflection of using less new oak than normal. It will develop in complexity and richness over the years. It really does need another 4 or 5 years to open up, but it’s special and a great wine from Renato, from this excellent vintage.
A beautifully textured red, from one of the most renowned Barolo years, demonstrating more finely grained tannins. The palate is enveloped in dark aromatic fruits, from bramble to cassis and herbal notes such as lavendar and rosemary. With silky smooth mouthfeel and perfect balance, this is a wine that will age incredibly well.
FROM THE PRESS
“The 2013 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata is fabulous. Knock-out aromatics, silky tannins and voluptuous fruit are some of the signatures. This is another young Barolo that is drinking almost too well for such a young wine. Today, the flavors are quite primary and the wine is dense, but there is certainly a lot to look forward to. The tannins are present, yet very nicely integrated for a young Barolo. This is a terrific Barolo in the making. Drink 2020-2033 ”Antonio Galloni (vinous.com)
