Barolo Rocche dell’Annunziata DOCG




Vinification of grapes coming from La Morra MGA Rocche dell’Annunziata, from vines planted in 1955,1961 and 1999. Alcoholic fermentation happens in concrete and lasts around 12-14 days, followed by a 12-15 day post-fermentative maceration. Total skin-juice contact is around 4 weeks. Then malolactic takes place in oak and the wine ages for around 20 months in 52-hl and 25-hl oak barrels crafted by Garbellotto. After aging, the wine rests for some months in concrete, steel and plastic, before being bottled, usually in July-August of the year before the release.


Barolo Rocche dell’Annunziata represents the heart of our winery, our baby. It comes from the parcels owned by Oberto family and it would like to fully express the characters of the terroir of La Morra: perfumes, elegance, drinkability. A wine meant for the long aging, full bodied, but enjoyable from now onwards. Perfect with aged cheeses, brasato al Barolo, game meats and venison.
