Wine Enthusiast"Editor's Choice". Enticing scents of ripe wild berry, star anise, menthol and fragrant blue flower mingle with whiffs of camphor and espresso. The smooth, precise palate offers crushed raspberry, Marasca cherry, licorice and dried botanical herbs alongside fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity lifts the finish. Enjoy through 2027.
Wine SpectatorA beautiful expression of Nebbiolo, offering cherry and floral aromas and flavors, with hints of licorice, iron, spice and tobacco. Rich and round, offering terrific balance, vibrant acidity and fine tannins. Superb length.—Non-blind Renato Ratti Marcenasco vertical (April 2019). Best from 2022 through 2045.
James SucklingThe palate here has a very succulent and gently chalky edge with an array of fresh and dried cherries, spices and flowers. The palate has a juicy and succulent feel with fresh, musk-infused cherries, raspberries and anise.
Wine AdvocateThis is a beautifully fully and generous expression from a vineyard that has historically been farmed by the Ratti family of La Morra. The Marcenasco cru is located directly under the winery, and although it is not in the official list of MGA crus, the vineyard name is registered to this winery. In the 2015 Barolo Marcenasco, you get the full fruit and dark berry nuances of the vintage with pretty softness and approachable, supple tannins. This wine celebrated its 50th anniversary (1965-2015) with this vintage.
