Aurelio Settimo Barolo Rocche dell’Annunziata


Tasting notes
This Barolo is deep garnet red in colour, with a long-lasting bouquet clearly showing spices, accompanied by characteristic violet and wild fruit overtones. The taste is elegant and full-bodied, with soft, mouth-filling tannins. The variety’s typical qualities are confirmed as a result of the vintage, tannic balance andtraditional ageing in large casks.
