Agricola Brandini Barolo Annunziata is a traditional Barolo that showcases the quintessence of the Langhe hills. It is produced by the Brandini family, who have been making wine in Piedmont since 1860. The noble Nebbiolo grapes are sourced from the famed Annunziata vineyard in La Morra, where the calcareous clay soils are perfect for growing this iconic grape variety. The wine is aged for 24 months in large oak barrels, which allow it to develop complex aromas of red fruit, violet, and spices. On the palate, it is full-bodied and well-structured, with fine tannins and a lingering finish. This is a wine that is enjoyable now, but will also reward cellaring for many years to come.
Garnet red, tending to orange with aging. On the nose it shows itself already in youth through a spectrum of notes ranging from eucalyptus to sweet tobacco to get to small red fruits. The drink is deep and multifaceted, with a silky and resolute tannic mass. Fresh, persistent and elegant.

Agricola Brandini believes in talented, young, and capable people with achievable and clear goals. Since organic agriculture is embraced here, it means the soil is not altered and most of the choices are made based on the environment, the clients, and the workers. It is this dedication that has led to some great results and gives hope for a great future for the young winery.
The company produces famous wines within the region and even though it is still young in the wine universe, it has already made a mark. There is one hectare of land that lies within Montelupo Albese municipality. This area enjoys south and south-westerly exposure. This area produces some of the best grape varieties.
The best reds are produced in la Morra S. Anna, la Morra Brandini, la Morra Annunziata, and Serralunga Meriame.
The new owners of the company made some changes. This included increasing the winery size and creating agritourism complete with a shop, restaurant, and accommodation facilities. The winery has modern equipment, although natural and traditional ways are used to vinify. Big barrels are used for affinage. The processes work well, and that is why the company has been receiving high ratings from Gambero Rosso. This is a top award in Italy.
