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.
It is made from the Arneis grape a native variety of Piemonte. The harvested grapes are pressed softly, fermented at a controlled low temperature, and the wine is left on the lees for at least four months. It has a fruity nose with scents of pear, tropical fruits and white flowers, and is fresh and minerally on the palate.
