Winemaker's Notes:

Intense, Cardinal red with sparkling tonalities. Resolute bouquet, with trace scents of ripe plum and an undercurrent of mixed spices. Full flavor with long persistence.

A wine suited to our hearty local dishes as well as refined meat dishes and aged cheeses.

About Renato Ratti:

Located halfway up the hill dominating the principal valley of Barolo, buttressed by steep slopes lined by orderly vineyards, lies a precious jewel from the 15th century: the Abbey of Annunziata.

As the monks historically produced wine from the grapes of the surrounding hillsides, today, remembering their lessons, incomparable wines are produced.

From the 100 acres of vineyards, the Renato Ratti winery produces around 150,000 bottles from the traditional denominations of the area: Barolo, Nebbiolo d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba, Dolcetto d'Alba.

The modern and innovative philosophy of vinification introduced since the 60's by Renato Ratti, is today in the hands of his son Pietro and his nephew Massimo Martinelli.
