Barolo Bricco Francesco  

Made only in great vintages, its name celebrates
Francesco Costamagna, the revered forefather
of the current owners. The Nebbiolo grapes come
from the “bricco” part of the “ Rocche dell’Annunziata”
vineyard, with the highest position and the best aspect.
The traditional vinification has a maceration of three
weeks, then ageing for 5 years (Reserve): three years in
large Slavonian oak barrels and at least two more years
in the bottle. Deep ruby red in colour with a complex of
aromas marked by hints of mature fruits, mint, chocolate
and balsamic notes, with matching flavours on the palate.
It has an impressive structure infused with fine grained
tannins, and a finish that lingers.
