DESCRIPTION

 

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar; Nov/Dec 2009Good full, dark red. Deep, ripe, highly aromatic nose combines black raspberry, currant, tar and licorice. Big, rich and sweet but with firm balancing acidity: lots of wine here in spite of being a bit youthfully closed today. Finishes with big, broad but suave tannins that build impressively as the wine opens in the glass. This large-scaled vintage required a later bottling, noted Ratti, who initially found the tannins to be too hard and wanted to wait for a better balance. He bottled these at the end of August, compared to the spring of 2008 for his 2005s.   92 Points

 

 

 

From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 2010.
Ratti’s 2006 Barolo Marcenasco is a pretty wine loaded with La Morra character. Sweet red cherries, tar, licorice, spices, herbs and French oak are some of the nuances that come together in this lithe, feminine Barolo. Deceptively medium in body, the Marcenasco shows lovely palate presence that leads to a vibrant, well-articulated finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. 91 points.

 

 

Wine Enthusiast.
Dark in color with a modern style and velvety extraction, the gorgeous Marcenasco expression of Barolo is redolent of blackberries, cherries, spice, leather and tobacco. The finish is long and elegant but not without power and determination. Keep this wine cellared for 10 years plus. 94 points and #1 in Top 100 of 2010.
