Accomasso. Years ago most didn't know him or not care about his wines. Now his Baroli are among the rarest worldwide. Good or bad? What an honor it was to taste this uber classic beautiful 1996 "Rocchette" (official single vineyard in "Rocche dell'Annunziata, la morra) from this outstanding vintage recently. Dark berries, cranberries, smoke, road tar & torched earth. Still a firm tannic structure, I loved a lot among the flavors of first maturity. A very straight, austere and honest Barolo that shows the traditional character of what Nebbiolo can be. Hope to stumble upon another 1996 again someday...
