Underbrush, red berry and leather aromas unfold in the glass. The taut palate shows cranberry, clove, star anise and a crushed sage note alongside firm tannins that grip the finish. Drink 2021–2028.

Located on the small hill of Annunziata, a hamlet of La Morra, the Marrone family winery enjoys a two-way view of the magnificent Barolo hills which reach the height of their splendour on these very slopes. Four generations of Marrones have devoted themselves to these vineyards and, over the course of time, they have developed a particular interest in wine tourism and hospitality. Denise, Serena and Valentina, the daughters of owner Gian Piero, are at your service to show you the slow mystery that turns Nebbiolo grapes into Barolo, the King of Wines. They organise lessons in winemaking, walks in the vineyards, guided tours of the winery and - to finish with a toast - tasting sessions accompanied by menus designed to perfectly match their wines.
