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.
Complex aromas of cedar, tea, tile and plums follow through to a medium body with round, creamy tannins and a savory finish. Really balanced already. Lovely young Barolo. Why wait? Drink or hold. Date Tasted: Aug 2020; Rating: 93 points; James Suckling
