Winemaker Notes

"Pietro Ratti makes wines from vineyards around the Abbey of the Annunziata, locally called the Marcenasco. This single-vineyard Rocche is deep brick red in color. With its brooding black-fruit aromas and firm, dry tannins over immense fruit flavors, it is a huge wine, showing great potential. It should keep forever."
-Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2002

"Aromas of peaches and berries, with hints of cedar. Full-bodied, with firm and chewy tannins and a long, ripe fruit finish."
-Wine Spectator
