“Aromas of pressed rose, wild red berry and baking spice come to the forefront on this gorgeous red along with a whiff of menthol. The elegant, structured palate has great tension, delivering juicy red cherry, strawberry compote, licorice and tobacco alongside taut, refined tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2026–2038.”

“The Renato Ratti 2018 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata (with 5,500 bottles produced) is the estate's headline wine with fruit from a special 1.5-hectare site with characteristic Tortoniano blue marl mixed with veins of sand. The wine is aged in a combination of new barrique and Slavonian oak casks. The results are fine and filigreed with aromas of sour cherry, smoke, tar and pencil shaving. I love the precision of this Barolo and the energy capped within its lean and tight mouthfeel.”
