Other Reviews....
The 2018 Barolo Conca is tight and beautifully intense with cassis, sour cherry, wild rose and blue lilac. The wine's inner fiber is fine and delicate, with slight aromas of spice, licorice and toast at the edges. Barolo Conca awards a lot of fine elegance and a long, polished finish. Drink 2024 - 2038.

Aromas of dried cherries with some spice and a hint of scorched orange rind. Medium-to full-bodied with a silky texture and an almost creamy mouth-feel. Intense, flavorful finish. The very fine tannins build a little towards the end. This has a lighter overall structure this year, but the intensity and focus and is not lacking. Try from 2024.

Conca, one of the smallest vineyard plots in the Barolo zone (a little more than 2.4 hectares) is situated just below the Ratti winery in an amphitheater setting. Ratti’s Barolo from Conca displays the elegant tannins Annunziata is known for, but offers a flavour profile a bit more wild. Aromas of morello cherry, oregano and tobacco emerge, with very good acidity and impressive persistence. Drinking Window 2025 - 2037.
