An intense garnet red color. A bouquet with traces of licorice and tobacco. Full flavored, full-bodied and elegant.
Pair with red meats on the spit or grilled, game, "grande cuisine" white and red meat dishes and aged cheeses.
"So much floral character on the nose, plus ripe fruits. Full body with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Subtle and reserved. Better in 2016."
"The 2010 Barolo Marcenasco is a perfumed and floral wine with pressed violets and crushed rose petal at the front of dark tones of spice and pipe tobacco. The wine shows and exotic, almost spicy personality with a good level of heft and density at the back. It meets your need, should you have it, for a bold, deeply layered Barolo. Drink: 2016-2026."
The Wine Advocate
"Good bright red. Musky aromas of currant, plum, minerals, graphite and licorice. Juicy, rich in extract and precise, with an enticing savory quality to the dark currant and mineral flavors. Structured, bright wine with lovely balancing acidity. This serious young Barolo seemed to shut down in the glass but already expresses its terroir clearly.
