Wow! There’s so much going on here. The nose presents an intense mix of dried cherry and red-berry fruit and rose petals, together with mild spice, Mediterranean herbs, tobacco dried apricot and dried and fresh nuts. Much more if you dig in. Full-bodied, super-relaxed palate that is the perfect display case for all the complex fruit character. The tannins are dense but seamless, never displaying any angular edge. Super-long and super concentrated, this is hard to fault. Yet, despite all the seeming extravagance, it remains a composed red with a long life ahead of it. Drink at your leisure.—James Suckling

This is a stunner. The Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata is a beautifully balanced and memorable wine that will continue to delight for years to come. It is compact and silky in texture with abundant and very lively aromas of dark fruit and wild cherry. The Rocche dell'Annunziata vineyard is located in La Morra. This is a gorgeous wine that awards lots of emotion. Production is 6,800 bottles.—Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Beautiful and balanced, the 2016 Bric del Fiasc has enticing scents of menthol, forest berry, iris, dog rose and new leather. Enveloping and full-bodied, the delicious palate delivers raspberry compote, baking spice, ripe Marasca cherry, licorice and baking spice before a minty finish. Possessing a weightless elegance as well as structure, it has enveloping, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity and thanks to the ripe, juicy fruit, you’d never guess this has an abv of 15%. Drink 2026–2046. Abv: 15% Kerin O’Keefe June 2023--Kerin O'keefe

A vibrant, linear and firmly structured red, this evokes cherry, raspberry, sun-kissed hay and licorice aromas and flavors. This is intense and builds to a long aftertaste of fruit, licorice and mineral notes, showing terrific balance and precision. Best from 2024 through 2042. 495 cases made, 198 cases imported.--Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
