The 2012 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata is more advanced in terms of its overall evolution. The bouquet offers dried cherry, plum, dark spice and tobacco. The bouquet presents moderate intensity (this lower aromatic threshold is common to many of the Barolos from this vintage), and the quality of fruit is slightly more aged and spicy as a result. Smooth tannins and firm consistency characterize the mouthfeel. This Nebbiolo offers near and medium-term drinking potential.

Color: garnet red.
A delicate and persistent bouquet with traces of licorice, rose and tobacco.
Full flavored, warm and moderately tannic.
The vineyard of Rocche dell'Annunziata is historically considered one of the most important of the all Barolo area. It's located at around 300 slm with a south-west exposure and the size is around 1.50 ha.
The typical blue marl soil with some layers of sand gives an incredible elegance and deep and persistent bouquet of roses and licorice.
A great wine for important dishes, red meats on the spit or grilled, game, "grande cuisine" white and red meat dishes and aged cheeses.
