Renato Ratti Barolo Marcenasco 2013
Grape - Nebbiolo
Character- Ratti's 2013 Barolo Marcenasco is absolutely delicious. Macerated cherry, spice, new leather and floral notes, along with soft contours (for a young Barolo) give the 2013 much of its bold, racy personality. Pliant, soft and inviting, the Marcenasco is a rare 2013 Barolo that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Expressive floral notes reappear on the finish, adding an attractive element of lift. Best of all, the 2013 delivers terrific quality for the money.
