Renato Ratti Barolo Marcenasco 2016
#27 - Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2019
Marcenasco is a Barolo of great class, elegance and structure. This Barolo is smooth, balanced and polished, faithfully reflecting the characteristics of the La Morra-Annunziata sub-zone. The majestic vintage 2015 Barolo is known for its rich and opulent style. Full- flavored and full-bodied, Marcenasco maintains its hallmark graceful finesse, combining both boldness and refinement. Intensely fragrant, the superbly textured palate has incredible depth and longevity. The wine leads with engaging notes of ripe dark and red berries, blending masterfully with hints of bramble, leather and spice before a long finish. Approachable now, this wine will age gracefully for decades.
