#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 There are historical documents from the "Rigestum Comunis Albe" that bear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.
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. 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.
The Wine Advocate
"Good red-ruby. Aromas of black fruits, licorice and leather. Not particularly complex but boasts good chewy fruit. The tannins hit the palate a bit early, giving the finish a slight dryness. Ratti told me that about 20% of the Marcenasco was harvested after the rain, but that the Conca and Rocche fruit was already in."

The King of Piedmont
Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the
most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to
Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has
long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...Read More About Nebbiolo
