Barolo DOCG Rocche dell’Annunziata

Rocche dell'Annunziata is definitely one of the most sought-after Geographical Mentions of La Morra. It is a fairly uniform cru, with mainly south-easterly exposure, between La Morra and the hamlet of Annunziata. Here we have a small plot of land where we grow the grapes used to make our Riserva: a broad spectrum Barolo, in which the characteristic elegance of La Morra is accompanied by great complexity and structure.
