From Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata Riserva is a profound and generous wine from a hot vintage. The fruit is opulent and soft with blackberry, dried cherry and dark plum on prime display. The wine emits clear confidence and quality that is evident in the intensity and the depth displayed here. Additional layering and complexity is provided by lingering tones of spice, tobacco, moist earth and white truffle. This beautifully-crafted Barolo delivers the grace and the inherent age-worthiness of the La Morra township."

From Vinous: "The 2011 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata shows why this is one of the greatest sites in Piedmont. The silkiest and most gracious of these Barolos, the Rocche is all about texture, polish and pure class. Rose petal, sweet red berries, cinnamon and pine are all laced into the super-expressive finish. The Rocche often drinks beautifully upon release, but it is also quite ageworthy as well. Readers can look forward to a long drinking window of pure pleasure here."

From Wine Spectator: "This is dense and tightly wound, with cherry, licorice, leather and iron aromas and flavors wrapped in the grip of refined, resonant tannins. This has energy and tension, along with excellent balance and length. The ripe fruit imparts sweetness throughout. Best from 2020 through 2038."
