Wine made with a combination of grapes from all our Barolo vineyards. South-easterly to South-westerly exposure, altitude between 250 and 300 m above sea level, plant age variable (from 10 to about 50 years) in that the area occupied extends for over 13 hectares covering diversified morphology, planted at different times and using different clones. All in the municipality of La Morra in the vineyards surrounding the winery in Frazione Annunziata.
The 2018 is a tremendous success for Cordero di Montezemolo, who handled the hot vintage with aplomb, delivering a fourth-straight triumph. Classic red-fruit aromas accented by notes of red rose and orange peel lead into a multidimensional palate that’s packed with plum and spice, girded with iron tannins that beg for time in a decanter or the cellar.

- NoseScents of cherry preserved in spirit, tobacco leaves, cocoa beans rose, violet and red berries.
