Notes on wine and food pairing
The vineyard of Rocche dell'Annunziata is historically considered one of the most important of the all Barolo area. It's located at around 300 slm with a south-west exposure and the size is around 1.50 ha. The typical blue marl soil with some layers of sand gives an incredible elegance and deep and persistent bouquet of roses and licorice.
A great wine for important dishes, red meats on the spit or grilled, game, "grande cuisine" white and red meat dishes and aged cheeses.
