    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2005 vintage of this wine was ranked #7 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2009

    Barolo Marcenasco is smooth, balanced, elegant and faithfully reflects the typical characteristics of the La Morra sub zone. Noble and generous, glory of old Piedmont, a wine suitable for long aging. 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 There are historical documents from the "Rigestum Comunis Albe" that bear witness to the cultivation of the Nebbiolo vine in the "Marcenascum" area already back in the 12th Century.

    This wine holds an intense garnet red color. A bouquet with traces of licorice and tobacco lingers on the nose. It is full flavored, full-bodied and elegant.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Silky, with intense aromas and flavors of tar, cherry, plum and balsamic, this delivers both power and grace, with a long finish. The balance is there, yet this needs time to come together. Best from 2015 through 2030.

    The 2007 Barolo Marcenasco is deeply impressive in this vintage. It shows great intensity and roundness in a style that captures the essence of the year. Dark fruit, flowers, spices and minerals wrap around the powerful, supple finish. This is a fabulous entry-level Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

    Lots of black truffle and ripe berry character, with toasted hazelnut undertones. Full body, with chewy tannins and lots of fruit. A little hot but shows beautiful chocolate undertones at the end. Give it a year or two before trying.

    James Suckling

    Good full red. Perfumed, pure nose offers cherry, rose petal, tar, underbrush and licorice. Suave and seamless on the palate, with ripe acidity energizing the flavors of dark cherry, spices and tar. Finishes very long, with strong but ripe tannins.

    One of the best barolos I have tasted in many a year. The perfect balance of flavor and nuance. I should have bought more during the sale
