Tasting Notes

A ripe, intense nose of cherry, baked earth, spice and savoury aromas, leads to a silky smooth palate of sour cherry, herbs, leather with some floral, violet notes. An impressively concentrated wine with good structure, opulent black cherry fruit and sweet ripe tannins. The finish provides some refreshing acidity and lingering notes of dark chocolate and spices.

Producer details

Acquired by leading Piemonte producer Araldica in 1999 following years of neglect, this exceptional estate in the Monferrato hills has undergone extensive restoration and replanting.

In the vineyard

The d'Annona vineyard is a fantastic single vineyard site with vines in excess of 60 years old. The grapes selected for this wine are grown on 2 small parcels totalling 3.5 ha.

In the winery

The grapes are hand-picked, destemmed and crushed, and innoculated with selected yeasts. The must undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel with pumping over four times per day. The wine is then racked to a mixture of new (two thirds) and one year old (one third) French oak barriques where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and is aged for 18-20 months. It spends a further 18 months in bottle before release.

Food Recommendations

Perfect with Carne cruda (steak tartare in France) and also really good with lamb cutlets, steak or a rich Piemontese bean stew.
