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 There are historical documents from the "Rigestum Comunis Albe" that bear witness to the cultivation of the Nebbiolo vine in the "Marcenascum" area already back in the 12th Century.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.
"The 2009 Barolo Marcenasco shows sweet fruit flavors of black cherry and cassis set against darker tones of black licorice, tar and cola. Definitely on the “modern” side of the winemaking spectrum, with distant notes of mocha and espresso to fatten up its aromatic bouquet, the wine shows excellent harmony and overall balance. The sweet tannins, and fleshy fruit consistency suggest this wine is almost ready to drink. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. "
