Barolo DOCG
Rocche dell’annunziata Riserva

Bricco Francesco


Produced only in the best years, this wine is named after Francesco Costamagna, a forebear of the winery's current owners.
It is made from Nebbiolo grapes grown on the top of the "Rocche dell'Annunziata" vineyard, the highest part of the vineyard with the best exposure.
It is aged for five years, including two years in oak barrels.
It is distinguished by the intense garnet red colour and complex aromas of overripe fruit, menthol and balsamic hints.
Its great structure is tempered by the softness of the tannins, and it offers a long and lingering finish.
