Aurelio Settimo Barolo Rocche Riserva Piedmont 2009
Aurelio Settimo is known for making some fantastically beautiful wines according to traditional precepts of La Morra in Piedmont, including from the upscale mark Rocche dell'Annunziata. La Morra is known for their elegant, airy, intense Barolos and that's exactly how Settimo tastes. The wines age incredibly nicely and their expression is "Old School" in the totally(!) good way. 100% of the grapes come from their own fields, where the age of the canes varies from 20 to 50 years. On average, Aurelio Settimo produces approximately 40,000 bottles per year. Most of these are Barolo DOCG or Barolo from the Rocche dell'Annunziata. The grapes that don't quite meet the towering standard are used in the wine house's Langhe Nebbiolo. Approximately 60% of production is exported. Throughout the wines are the nerve, the energy, the titillating, bright fruit and the classic, subtle notes of tar, rose petals and dried flowers.
