Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
Notes from the Winemaker:
Color: garnet red.
A bouquet with traces of licorice and tobacco.
Full flavored, full-bodied and elegant.

Notes on wine and food pairing:
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 There are historical documents from the "Rigestum Comunis Albae" that bear witness to the cultivation of the Nebbiolo wine in the "Marcenascum" area already back in the 12th Century.
Barolo Marcenasco is smooth, balanced, elegant and faithfully, best to drink between 6 to 12 years after the vintage.
Red meats on the spit or grilled, game, "grande cuisine" white and red meat dishes and aged cheeses.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - James Suckling:
"A pure, subtle Barolo 2016, showing poached strawberries, red-apple tart, rose-water and dried cloves. Medium-bodied and tight with fine tannins, steely acidity and a medium-chewy finish. Drink from 2022." - (10 Sep, 2019)
