Barolo DOCG
Rocche dell’annunziata Riserva

Bricco Francesco


Made only in great vintages, its name celebrates Francesco Costamagna, the revered forefather of the current owners. The Nebbiolo grapes come from a single vineyard, called “Bricco”, at the top of “Rocche dell’Annunziata” subzone, with the highest elevation and the best exposure. Deep ruby red color with complex aromas marked by hints of mature fruits, mint, chocolate and balsamic notes. It has an impressive structure infused with fine-grained tannins and a finish that lingers.
