Rocche dell’Annunziata is a highly prestigious vineyard that Renato Ratti classified as a first growth and is part of the historical territory once known as Marcenasco. It is located in the La Morra subzone of the Langhe at approximately 300m asl. Aged in barrique.
This is a favourite Cru of mine and from our favourite producer with this cru – little wonder it was my wine of the night (only two od us picked it that way). Beautifully pretty – red fruit, rose petal, elegant flowers. Super fine dusty, chalky tannins. Tightly wound. Class all the way. Superb wine. Wow! Ian Cook, FWC.
Pietro Ratti's 2019 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata opens to a delineated bouquet with a mineral note or iodine that dovetails into purple berry fruit and lots of dried red rose and crushed flower. That evident floral imprint is something I often find in the wines that come from this side of La Morra in the south-facing ridge of vines in Rocche dell'Annunziata. With more time in the glass, the mineral note pushes to the forefront of this elegantly contoured mid-weight Barolo. The wine is powerful and tight but beautifully fragrant at the same time. Production is 6,000 bottles. Drink 2025-2042. 96 Points. Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate.
