Barolo Rocche Dell'Annunziata DOCG 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Die granatrote Farbe weist noch intensive rubinrote Reflexe auf. Intensiv, ätherisches Bukett mit charmanten Noten von Pflaume, Vanille, Tabak und einem dezenten Veilchenton. Ausgewogen und elegant präsentiert er sich am Gaumen mit feinen Tanninen und Nuancen von reifer Frucht. Langer Nachhall.

On May 15, 1841 the police office of the royal Military Command in Alba granted Luigi Costamagna, son of the estate’s founder Francesco Antonio Costamagna, an official licence “to retail the wine produced from his own vineyards” in La Morra. In 1911, Francesco Costamagna and his son Riccardo were awarded a gold medal at the “Gran Premio dell’Esposizione Internazionale di Torino” for fifty years of winemaking. When Francesco died, his son Riccardo, an attorney, continued to manage the winery with the help of his wife Maddalena. When he died in the 1930s, Riccardo’s wife decided to sell the vineyards located outside La Morra. Wine was produced only for the family’s own consumption and some grapes were sold to other winemakers. In the late 1960s, Maddalena’s niece, Claudia Ferraresi, together with her husband Giorgio Locatelli, restarted the commercial winemaking activity, planted new vineyards and modernised the old winery. Since the mid 1980s their son Alessandro Locatelli has been managing the winery with the help of agronomist Gian Piero Romana and enologist Giuseppe Caviola. Alessandro has improved the vineyards and wine-making techniques, he has been developing customer sales all over the world, and so carrying on the family tradition with passion and drawing on the wealth of experience gathered by the family.

Soft nose, a bit of herbal sweetness, a bit herbal, even a touch rhubarby, soil, mineral, very focused and clear, rather soft on entry, nice unfettered wine, clear, herbal notes, small but precise wild cherry fruit, a touch of savory dried meats and incipient porcini, nice tension and balance in the mouth, nice follow though with savory, rooty fruit, good length

Ruby red with garnet. The nose is broad, complex, long finish with hints of purple which is followed by notes of leather and tobacco. The taste is balanced, elegant, pleasantly tannic, with a final long and persistent. Pairs well with roasts and red meats, game, braised dishes with truffles and cheese.
