1 case
Equiv. £187.50 per bottle

Tasting Note:

If La Serra was remarkable for its openness and accessibility then, by contrast, the usually velvet-and-silk Rocche dell Annunziata was showing a little more power and structure on the day. With aeration, ripe stony red fruits began to glisten in view; its ruby-minerality paving the way for more impactful fruit, with notes of wild red berries, fresh mint, cinnamon, and a little sandalwood spice. From two parcels south and southeast facing within one of the region’s great vineyards, situated in the Annunziata sub zone of La Morra. Aged for two years in a mix of big and small barrels, light toast, French oak (15, 20, 30 and 35 HL sizes for the big barrels.)
