Aurelio Settimo Rocche dell’Annunziata Barolo DOCG 2010

Estate: Aurelio Settimo is a family winery established in 1962, located in La Morra in Piemonte, northwestern Italy. The estate has 6.64 hectares of vines, nearly all of which is Nebbiolo, just under a hectare is planted with Dolcetto.

The Rocche dell’Annunziata hill is renowned for being one of the most highly regarded crus in Barolo, creating wines that are full bodied, delicate and highly aromatic. Aurelio Settimo has 3.42 hectares of Nebbiolo growing on its famed south/southwest slopes. Since 2007, Aurelio’s daughter, Tiziana has been at the helm.

Philosophy: “To focus on QUALITY, in keeping with TRADITION.”

Winemaking: Only “natural, environmentally-friendly products” are used.
Grapes are hand harvested from vines in clay/calcareous soil on the slope of Rocche dell’Annunziata. Aged for 12 months in concrete tanks, 24 months in big oak casks of French wood 10-15 years old.

Tasting Notes: Dark garnet with brick edges in colour. Deeply aromatic with cherry, tarry earth, crushed white peppercorn, rose, and biscotti. Wooly tannins embrace plum, blackberry, cherry, black pepper, candied violet, sandalwood and soft wisps of cigar box spice. Fresh acidity compliments black cherry, eucalyptus, licorice and tarry earth on the dry, plush finish. Layer upon layer of flavours in each velvety sip.
