The Rocche dell’Annunziata vineyard, located on a steep hillside, is considered to be one of the most important sites in all of Barolo. Pietro Ratti calls the site a Grand Cru of La Morra. The wine is aged in French oak barriques in its first year and is then transferred to large Slavonian oak casks for its second year of maturation.

Other Reviews....
Lots of dried flowers here give a perfumed nature to it with berries and citrus. Hibiscus water, too. Full-bodied and chewy with lots of tannins and vivid acidity. Subtle plum and strawberry character. Muscular and formed. This needs time. Try after 2028.

The 2019 Barolo Rocche Dell'Annunziata is spectacular. Aged for two years in 25-hectoliter Slavonian barrels, it is flush with woven aromas of licorice, raspberry liqueur, pressed roses, and crushed stones. Full-bodied, with a weightless feel, fine-grained tannins, and fresh acidity, it offers a seamless arch through the mid-palate, without any harsh edges, and is packed with ripe red cherry, cedar, black tea, and dried flowers. Drink 2025-2045.
