Sipping Fine Wine

Have several ‘15, decided to open 1. Located halfway up the hill dominating principal valley of Barolo, lined by vineyards, lies a precious 15th century Abbey of Annunziata. Medium Ruby with complex aromas of ripe berry fruits and fresh floral scents. On the palate the palate cherry, tobacco and fresh herbs give this full-body wine grace and elegance. Soft fine tannins on a well balanced frame makes this wine enjoyable today as well as have room to run over the next decade. 50th Anniversary!

2015 Ratti Marcanesco offers a good evolving complexity on the nose going from its red fresh and perfumed fruit, through a sweet licorice and menthol phase before fading out in its telltale tar finish. The gripping tannins directs the palate, but is well accompanied by a good fruit intensity and fresh acidity. Give it at an hour in the decanter and it will display its full potential.

Exquisite, precise single vineyard Barolo from a great vintage and well known winery. Bouquet is to die for - black cherry, rose petal. Mouthfeel is smooth and brings succulent black cherry fruit, strong, yet approachable tannins with tar and roses evident on the finish. Beautifully balanced - the perfectly nurtured acidity leaves you craving the next sip. New World style Barolo doesn’t get any better than this. Beautiful now, but will improve with proper cellaring. 2015 vintage on May 16, 2020

A wonderful Barolo. The best that I have ever tried. Rich dark cherry flavors with a hint of tannins on the finish. #27 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 list of 2019. I can see why it made the list.

Nice fruit, light/medium tannins. Good finish. This will be great in 3-5 years.
