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 There are historical documents from the "Rigestum Comunis Albe" that bear witness to the cultivation of the Nebbiolo vine in the "Marcenascum" area already back in the 12th Century.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.

| Wine Spectator 91 points (Dec 5 2012)
Rich and smooth, with a base of assertive tannins underneath. The cherry, balsamic and tar flavors start out with the fleshy texture and linger with the dusty tannins. Offers a long, minerally aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2032.óB.S.
