Notes from the Winemaker:

La Serra, as the other side of Marcarini Barolo production is named, comes from a historic area of ancient origin whose soil, lacking organic substances but rich in mineral salts and microelements, is capable of giving wines good color, structure, and flavor but never excessive tannins. The particular microclimate is characterized by a slight ventilation with the circulation of fresh and dry air

The ripening occurs a bit later than in the Brunate area, resulting in very elegant and apparently less structured wines, but always generous and rich with intense, ethereal bouquets.
The fermentation and all phases of maturation follow the same traditional methodology as the Brunate wine.

Tasting Notes:
The wine has a garnet-red color with ruby-red reflections and a slight orange note. The nose is ethereal, fresh, elegant and very persistent, with hints of violet, rose, licorice and sweet spices. In the mouth, the flavor is long and intense.
To be served in crystal glasses with very large bowls.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2015 Vintage):
"Red berry, pressed rose, camphor and wild herb aromas shape the nose. Elegantly structured, the taut, lithe palate offers cranberry, sour cherry and star anise alongside a note of mint. Polished tannins and bright acidity keep it fresh and balanced. Drink 2021–2030. Kerin O’Keefe" - (12/1/2019)

93 Points - Vinous (2015 Vintage):
"The 2015 Barolo La Serra is wonderfully silky, aromatic and refined, with all of the lift that is such a signature of this high-altitude La Morra site. Flowers, sweet red cherry, spice, tobacco and cedar are wonderfully delineated. Even more importantly, the aggressive tannins that once often penalized this wine are pretty much absent, a change Marcarini ascribes to gentler handling of the fruit during the initial part of fermentation. This is very nicely done. " Antonio Galloni - (Feb 2019)

93 Points - James Suckling (2015 Vintage):
"Spicy, earthy and very ripe with gorgeous aromas and intensity. Full-bodied, tight and very focused with a great finish and length. Shows compact and polished tannins. Goes on for minutes. Drink from 2023." - (7 Jan, 2019)
