*Highly Recommended, Ranked #7 on Top 100 Wines of 2009* 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. (JS)
Wonderful aromatics. Beautiful and complex aromas of blueberries and citrus fruits. Full-bodied with gorgeous polished, chewy tannins. A toned, fruit-forward beautiful wine that could still use some time. Check back after 2014.
Marcenasco really comes through this vintage in terms of power, elegance and harmony. There are spice and herbal notes mixed in with almond, vanilla and allspice. You’ll love the sensation of wholeness and harmony here. Drink this opulent wine with filet mignon with wild mushroom cream sauce.
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. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022. This is a wonderful set of new releases from Renato Ratti, one of Piedmont’s historic names. The 2005s are especially beautiful for their soft, textured fruit and well-integrated French oak, something that hasn’t always been the case in recent vintages. (AG)
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. (ST)
