Conca is one of the oldest and most exclusive MGAs (special mention areas) of the entire Barolo zone. Already known by the Benedictine monks of the Abbey of the Most Holy Annunciation; a particular bluish land and special microclimate that – alone in the Langhe district – allows for the growth of the famous Anemone Coronarie (poppy anemone) with its unmistakable reddish purple color. The Conca vineyard is quite small in extension, approx. 7000 m2 and is situated below the Annunziata cellar.

Halfway up a hill overlooking the main Barolo valley lies the Abbey of the Annunziata - Our Lady of the Annunciation - a priceless jewel of the 15th Century. Just as the friars of centuries past produced wines from the grapes grown along the hollow below the abbey, the area still produces wines of incomparable quality thanks to the respectful, yet innovative wine-making philosophy of Renato Ratti - a tradition that still lives on today thanks to the passion and commitment of his son Pietro.
