Rocche dell’Annunziata

One of La Morra’s most historic vineyards, giving Barolo wines of extreme finesse, dominated by delicate, floral, spicy aromas.

The Oberto family have been proprietors of 1,3 hectares (3.21 acres) in Rocche dell’Annunziata for many generations.
We have 3 different parcels which extend from the road at the bottom of the valley leading toward Barolo at 242 meters (794 feet) above sea level, to the road leading to Torriglione, at 270 meters (885 feet). The terrain is calcareous blue marl (bluish-green clay), with a wonderfully smooth texture, half silt, the rest sand and clay. As the vineyard descends, the proportion of sand increases from 24% in the highest part to 30% at the lowest point where we have our Sauvignon Blanc planted on the other side of the road  leading to Barolo.
