Description

Details of wine

Rocche dell'Annunziata is certainly one of the most sought-after Menzione Geografica of La Morra. It is a quite homogenous cru with exposure principally towards the southeast, located between La Morra and the frazione of Annunziata. One of the soil's characteristics is the presence of stones (hence the name "Rocche," which means rocks) that help the soil drain water. Rocche produces Barolo with soft tannins, concentrated wines with intensely fruity notes that are always well balanced and elegant.

To understand our history, we must return to the beginning of the 1900s in the village of Ciotto near La Morra. In this cluster of houses, the Veglio family has been dedicated to working the land for generations. To be a farmer in the Langhe meant bending over the vines, cultivating orchards and gardens, raising livestock, and inventing new ways of getting by every day. It was a difficult life. Angelo Veglio, born in 1928, would pass the winters by visiting the farmhouses as a “masacrin,” or a sort of butcher on house call, particularly for the preparation of salami. During the summer, after working in the fields he would travel to the market in Canale, where he sold the few peaches his orchards produced. Angelo had a dream: leave the life of a sharecropper and working in agriculture to dedicate himself to making wine; and purchase vineyards and bottle wine under his name, using native Langhe grapes—above all, nebbiolo, in which he had the foresight to recognize quality and potential. Today, our winery produces 80 thousand bottles from about 14 hectares of vineyards distributed throughout La Morra and Monforte d’Alba. We believe in a balanced wine, respectful of the territory and the characteristics of its land of origins, fruit of an attentive work in the vineyard and just as much care taken in the cellars. We make four important cru (officially known as Menzioni Geografiche Aggiuntive) of Barolo: Arborina, Gattera, Rocche dell’Annunziata, and Castelletto. In addition to Barolo, we vinify other great reds of the Langhe: Langhe Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto d’Alba.
