They specialize in their home commune of La Morra, for the production of various Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo wines, including parts of La Morra‘s most famous crus, Gattera‘, Giachini‘ and the great Rocche dell‘Annunziata‘. These are really bright, fruity and complex wines.

Tasting note: A big, tannic wine, the 2012 Barolo Conca is also the wine most heavily marked by French oak in this lineup. The classic rich, resonant profile of this site comes through nicely, but the tannins are considerable though…” – Antonio Galloni
