2019 Barolo Rocche dell’Annunziata, Gagliasso
A young, stern nose with notes of red currants, red cherries, licorice and smoke. A fine depth. Day two it displays notes of Lange earth, iron and mushrooms. Very, very good.
The taste is tight and focused with notes of hard cherry candy, salmiak, chrushed rocks and violets. The day after the tannins are more noticable and the fruit is more laid back. Needs time, 8+ years.
