Description

The 2013 Gagliasso - Rocche dell'Annunciata Barolo is a classic full bodied wine with dominant strawberry aromas on the nose and rich well integrated tannins.
It is produced from 3 different vineyards in La Morra, two of 55 years old and one of 32. The grapes are harvested very ripe and are meticulously selected before winemaking begins. The wine is matured for 12 months in French barrels, 50% of which are new oak giving smooth vanilla and smokey, toast flavours and 50% are 2 years old allowing for softening of tannins and better flavour integration. These factions are then blended in large barrels and further matured for 18 months before being bottled and held back in the winery for another 10-12 months of bottle maturation.

Reviews

"Given a good length of time to breath, this wine exhibits the classic characteristics of the nebbiolo grape. It is high in acid but beautifully balanced with lots of rich red fruit aromas and flavours. Its high tannins are smooth and well integrated and help make it perfect for ageing. It has started to develop with warm earthy aromas and flavours and will continue to do well into the foreseeable future. Full bodied with a long finish."
