    Winemaker's Notes:

    #7 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

    Noble and generous, glory of old Piedmont, a wine suitable for long aging, Barolo is the absolute master of the table. It conquers the palate with the conviction of strength, harmony and fullness and holds its sway at length. Barolo Marcenasco has ancient origins. There are historical documents from the "Rigestum Comunis Albe" that bear witness to the cultivation of the Nebbiolo vine in the "Marcenascum" area already back in the 12th Century. Barolo Marcenasco is smooth, balanced, elegant and faithfully reflects the typical characteristics of the La Morra sub zone.

    Color: intense garnet red. A bouquet with traces of licorice and tobacco. Full flavored, full-bodied and elegant.

    Food matches: Red meats on the spit or grilled, game, "grande cuisine" white and red meat dishes and aged cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This fabulous Nebbiolo displays aromas of very ripe strawberry and cappuccino. Full-bodied, with supervelvety tannins and incredible concentration. All the tannins are coated with gorgeous fruit. Best after 2013.

    The 2005 Barolo Marcenasco opens with perfumed aromatics that lead to a plump, juicy core of red fruit. The wine possesses notable inner perfume and terrific overall balance in a fresh, accessible style.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Full red. Currant, graphite, minerals and bitter chocolate on the nose. Sweet, fruity and pure, with lovely cut to the dark berry and floral flavors. Bright but nicely integrated acidity. There's something Burgundian about the fruit here. A nicely concentrated Barolo that finishes with a broad dusting of tannins and hints of sweet oak and marzipan.
