Wine Advocate 95 points - The 2006 Barolo Rocche dell’Annunziata/Torriglione reveals a rich, kaleidoscope of perfumed aromas that meld seamlessly into a palate of ripe red fruit. The tannins are silky and exceptionally refined, yet the wine possesses plenty of muscle, depth and richness, albeit in a style that favors elegance over power. Along with the Cerequio and the Sarmassa, the Rocche is one of Voerzio’s more feminine Barolos. In 2006, it is drop-dead gorgeous. Patience is required, but readers who are able to lovingly cellar this wine will not be disappointed. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.  (Mar 2010)

Wine Spectator 92 points - Sweet cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors take on added dimension, with licorice and menthol accents. Boasts a firm base of tannins that need to integrate, but overall this is balanced and long. Best from 2014 through 2032. 50 cases imported. -BS  (Apr 30 2011)

Producer
Our winery was established in 1986 in La Morra, a town in the heart of the Langhe that has always been renowned for the greatness of its vineyards, some of which were mentioned in town records going back as far as 1250. We began with 2 hectares, and over the years have managed to acquire the most prestigious, historic crus for the production of Barolo, such as La Serra, Brunate, Cerequio, Sarmassa, Rocche dell’Annunziata and Fossati, and excellent vineyards for Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Merlot. We then decided to increase the number of vines in the new vineyards, and in some of the old ones, to 6000/8000 per hectare and reduce yield for the most prestigious wines to 500/700 grams per plant. The clusters we leave on our vines are exclusively responsible for the quality of our wine. We have always worked in the traditional way in the cellar, with total simplicity at every stage from vinification to bottling, with no interference, letting the diversity of each terroir emerge and giving each vineyard the chance to make its own wine. Our production is limited: with just over 20 hectares we produce between 40,000 to 60,000 bottles, depending on the harvest.
