The aromas to this are captivating with rose petals and blueberries and incense. Full-bodied, with very fine tannins and a long finish that caresses yet stimulates my palate.

Full-bodied, with very fine tannins and a long finish that caresses yet stimulates my palate. I like this a little better than the 2007. Try it in 2015.

The 2008 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata/Torriglione impresses for its silky tannins and overall textural finesse. It shows striking mid-palate richness and gorgeous inner sweetness to match its beautifully delineated expressive bouquet. Stylistically it is a bit on the masculine side but very beautiful just the same. Layers of flavor build to the huge dramatic finish. The Rocche presents a very classic aromatic and flavor profile backed up by serious heft and structure. It is the sweetest and most seductive of the 2008s. Readers will need to be especially patient though. The Rocche shuts down hard in the glass. It won't be an easy wine but those who can wait will be handsomely rewarded. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033. -Antonio Galloni

Hints of cedar and spice emerge on the firm finish. Elegant overall. Best from 2015 through 2030. – BS

Big rich and concentrated nose, but Nebbiolo comes through. Such power and ripeness! Same richness but not without grip and focus. Powerful and certainly not shy. Almost too rich for me.

Almost too rich for me. Lay down and forget for quite a while. 17/20 (WS)
