Description

Elegant and soft to the palate, it is characterized by the fruity notes of raspberry and a floral and spicy nose. The Nebbiolo grapes come exclusively from the vineyard 'Rocche dell Annunziata', one of the historical crus of La Morra. Ruby red color featuring garnet reflections. The bouquet is led by fruity, floral, rose and violet, and spicy scents which are well integrated. The pure Nebbiolo flavor is highlighted in medium Slavonian oak barrels. The refined and elegant aromas are perfectly integrated by the soft taste. Very pleasant sensation while drinking.

THE WINERY

Rocche Costamagna

On May 15, 1841, the police office of the royal Military Command in Alba granted Luigi Costamagna, son of the estate's founder Francesco Antonio Costamagna, an official license to retail the wine produced from his own vineyards& in La Morra. In 1911, Francesco Costamagna and his son Riccardo were awarded a gold medal at the Gran Premio dell'Esposizione Internazionale di Torino for fifty years of winemaking. When Francesco died, his son Riccardo continued to manage the winery with the help of his wife Maddalena.After Riccardo's death in the 1930s, his wife decided to sell the vineyards located outside La Morra. Wine was produced only for the family's own consumption and some grapes were sold to other winemakers. In the late 1960s, Maddalena's niece, Claudia Ferraresi, together with her husband Giorgio Locatelli, restarted the commercial winemaking activity, planted new vineyards and modernized the old winery. Since the mid 1980s their son Alessandro Locatelli has been managing the winery with the help of agronomist Gian Piero Romana and enologist Giuseppe Caviola. Alessandro has improved the vineyards and winemaking techniques. He has been developing customer sales all over the world, and so carrying on the family tradition with passion and drawing on the wealth of experience gathered by the family.
