This needs air to reveal a dense core of cherry, currant, tar and leather flavors, matched to a solid, tightly woven structure. The pointed tannins hold court on the finish for now, but sweet fruit and licorice accents persist. Best from 2017 through 2030. 1,500 cases imported.-BS

Ratti’s 2010 Barolo Marcenasco is gorgeous. Dark red cherries, spices, new leather, menthol and tobacco are all laced together in the glass. The French oak is a bit evident at this stage, yet the weight, richness and body of the year comes through in spades. The Marcenasco is made from a collection of sites in La Morra. The 2010 was aged predominantly in cask, while about a third of the wine was aged in French oak barriques.

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.

Wine maker notes
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 There are historical documents from the ”Rigestum Comunis Albae” that bear witness to the cultivation of the Nebbiolo vine in the ”Marcenascum” area already back in the 12th Century.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.

Food pairing
Red meats on the spit or grilled, game, ”grande cuisine” white and red meat dishes and aged cheeses.
