Description

Critics

“Ripe plums with peaches and tile, as well as light coffee and autumnal-leaf character. Medium to full body, round and chewy tannins and a rich, flavorful finish. Beautiful, creamy tannins. Better after 2023 and onwards.” – James Suckling

Producer

The Nebbiolo grapes come exclusively from the vineyard “Rocche dell’Annunziata”, one of the historical crus of La Morra. The vinification again is traditional, with a maceration which can last about two weeks. The wine is then aged for 24 months in large Slavonian oak barrels, and then fined for at least one year in the bottle. Elegant and soft to the palate, it is characterized by the fruity notes of raspberry and a floral and spicy nose.” – Producer

Since 1841, generations of the Costamagna family have dedicated their lives to Barolo production. The long story began in the XIX century with Francesco Costamagna, carried on in the 1960s by Claudia Ferraresi and Giorgio Locatelli, and for the last 30 years by their son Alessandro. Based in La Morra, Rocche dell’Annunziata: Rocche Costamagna consists of 14 hectares of vineyards owned by the family for generations, with 5 of those hectares in the sub-zone named Rocche dell’Annunziata, one of the renowned Barolo Crus.
