Ripe plums with peaches and tile, as well as light coffee and autumnal-leaf character. Medium to full body, round and chewy tannins and a rich, flavorful finish. Beautiful, creamy tannins. Better after 2023 and onwards.

The 2016 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata is a classic wine from this site. Fresh and vibrant, with superb depth, the Rocche shows just how appealing the vintage is. Dark cherry, spice, mocha, cedar and leather build in the glass. More than anything else, I am so impressed with the wine's depth and dimension. The 2016 Rocche is one of the best Barolos I have tasted from Rocche Costamagna.

Enticing aromas of red-skinned berry, leather and alpine herb emerge from the glass. The savory, balanced palate features raspberry compote, morello cherry, tobacco and licorice alongside fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2023–2032.
