Half way up the hill overlooking the main Barolo valley, along the first spurs of the neatly aligned vineyards, lies the Abbey of the Annunziata (Our Lady of the Annunciation), a priceless jewel of the 15th Century. Just as the good friars of centuries past produced wines from the grapes grown along the hollow below their abbey, a position of glory and grandeur, today, faithful to their same timeless wisdom, wines of incomparable quality are produced. – Description from dvoristanac

  • In the context of prices being demanded and met by so many over-hyped cherry-cola-ized NorCal wines these days, and even though we've helped give Piedmont too much attention here which hasn't helped price curves (for the consumer, anyway), these prices are still oh-so-cheap for what you're getting. And, they're even in their proper drinking wind... Read More
