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, weight of black cherry fruit and sweet ripe tannins. The finish provides some refreshing astringency and good acidity.

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 grapes are grown on 2 small parcels totalling 3.5 ha, from vines in excess of 60 years old. The d'Annona vineyard is owned by the winemaker, ensuring that the best possible viticultural practices are employed for quality grapes and a special wine.

In the winery

Aged for 20 months in French oak barriques.

Food Recommendations

If steak tartare is your thing then this is the wine but equally great with lamb
