Rocche Dei Manzoni Barolo Madonna Assunta 2001
Rich in history and blessed with the best locations, the vineyards of Podere Rocche Dei Manzoni are all situated within the municipality of Monforte d'Alba. Here the products are born and realize a perfect marriage of tradition and innovation.
The high quality of Podere Rocche dei Manzoni's products is guaranteed not only by meticulous vinification processes and a constant search for improvement but also by a strenuous work performed in the vineyard, through short pruning and thinning out of grapes to obtain very low output of grape/hectare.
