"Garnet red in color. Smells like a bouquet with traces of licorice and tobacco. Full flavored, full-bodied and elegant on the palate."
"This is very ripe with a dried berry, almost raisin character and Asian mushroom undertone. Full body, chewy tannins and a long finish. Needs time to soften. Better in 2017." - JamesSuckling.com

"The Ratti family has done a terrific job with its well-priced 2011 Barolo Marcenasco. The wine shows ripe fruit at the beginning, but the intensity of the bouquet quickly finds good balance with just a few swift swirls of the glass. Those aromas are painted in broad brush strokes with thick lines of black fruit, spice, rose and anise seed. It shows moderate complexity, but just enough to keep your interest as the wine continues to shift and evolve in the glass. In all, Barolo Marcenasco exhibits a plush, fruit-forward style with soft tannins and rich texture. It is best for near and medium-term drinking." - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

"This sleek version is laced with licorice, leather, cherry and light tar flavors. More savory than fruity, this lingers with tobacco, mineral and spice notes, showing fine length. Balanced, this should come together over the near term. Best from 2018 through 2029. 5,000 cases made." - BS, Wine Spectator
