Wine List/Renato Ratti

[SOLD-OUT] Renato Ratti Barolo Marcenasco 2009

Variety: Nebbiolo
Region: Piedmont
Hoon Hooke 93 points!
"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.

You can always count on Pietro Ratti for a fine bottle of wine. He is one of the most consistent and bankable producers in La Morra especially for those who enjoy the softer and more sensual side of Barolo."
