The 2001 Barolo Rocche dell’Annunziata/Torriglione is starting to show early signs of maturity. Worn in leather, spices, crushed flowers and dried black fruits are some of the notes that flow from this elegant, classy Barolo. The 2001 Rocche isn’t likely to make old bones, but it is in a sweet spot right now, where there is lovely tertiary complexity and also enough fruit to support as much as another decade of aging. My preference would be to drink the Rocche over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. ||Contrary to the vast majority of growers, Roberto Voerzio has always maintained that 2000 was a better vintage for him than 2001. After having tasted both vintages extensively over the last few years, its pretty clear Voerzio is right. The 2001s haven’t held up as well as the 2000s I reviewed last year and are developing at a faster pace. Not surprisingly, both of the Baroli Voerzio bottles only in magnum have developed particularly gracefully.||A Leonardo Lo Cascio Selection, Winebow, Montvale, NJ; tel.
