"The small Conca vineyard (6900 mq) is the hollow of the Abbey of Annunziata (our Lady of the Annunciation). It's one of the oldest sub zones of the entire Barolo District, an area already appreciated by the Benedictine Monks starting from the XII century. It's blue marl soil and the particular microclimate give a good power and long life.
A delicate and persistent bouquet with traces of licorice, mint and Lebanese cedar pine. Mineral, full flavored, warm and agreeable tannic.
"Barolo Conca is intense, concentrated, and powerful. As you reach the first bends on the road from Annunziata down to the Albe-Barolo provincial highway, you pass on your right a small depression covered with well-tended vines. It is a sheltered spot with a favourable microclimate and good, south east-facing positions. In season, a rare flower can be found growing among the vines, the red crown anemone, which might serve as the vineyard's proud emblem. The Conca vineyard sits just below the impressive tasting room at the Renato Ratti winery." - Distributor
