#56 James Suckling's Top 100 Italian Wines of 2023

For 50+ years, the name Ratti is indissolubly tied to Barolo. Today, the Ratti Cellar at La Morra produces the classical wines of the Langhe district, in full respect of the philosophy established by the founder, Renato Ratti. Noble and generous, a glory of Old Piedmont, it is a wine suited to very long aging. Barolo is the absolute master of the dining room. It conquers the palate with strength, harmony and fullness and maintains its power at length. A great wine for important dishes, red meats roasted on a spit or grilled, game, dishes of gourmet white and red meats and ripe cheeses. A garnet red color. Delicate and persistent fragrance with trace scents of licorice, rose and violet. Full flavored, warm, with extremely elegant tannins offering long persistence.

Lots of dried flowers here give a perfumed nature to it with berries and citrus. Hibiscus water, too. Full-bodied and chewy with lots of tannins and vivid acidity. Subtle plum and strawberry character. Muscular and formed. This needs time. Try after 2028.

The 2019 Barolo Rocche Dell'Annunziata is spectacular. Aged for two years in 25-hectoliter Slavonian barrels, it is flush with woven aromas of licorice, raspberry liqueur, pressed roses, and crushed stones. Full-bodied, with a weightless feel, fine-grained tannins, and fresh acidity, it offers a seamless arch through the mid-palate, without any harsh edges, and is packed with ripe red cherry, cedar, black tea, and dried flowers. Drink 2025-2045.

Austere, this red shows cherry, eucalyptus, earth and mineral flavors backed by stiff tannins. Reveals a kernel of fruit at the core and substantial texture and length, so give this time. Features firm grip on the finish. Best from 2026 through 2045. 121 cases imported.
