WS94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
Exhibits plenty of balsamic flavors, with macerated cherry, leather and spice notes, showing ample tannins that are well-integrated with the fruit and acidity. Fine length. Best from 2016 through 2030. 150 cases imported...

Aromas of sliced plums and peaches follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a long finish. This is flavorful and intense for the vintage. Another example of excellent winemaking from Ratti in 2009. Try after... Aromas of sliced plums and peaches follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a long finish.

It feels large and velvety in the mouth with lingering tones of espresso, black fruit and cola. I can’t help but notice the wine’s exotic, mysterious personality with overtones of Indian or Middle Eastern spice market. This is for those who like a little attitude in their Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. - ML

Good dark red. Complex, distinctive nose melds blueberry, licorice, cedar and graphite minerality. Firm acidity and slightly sharp tannins currently give a somewhat musclebound quality to the flavors of blackberry... Good dark red. Complex, distinctive nose melds blueberry, licorice, cedar and graphite minerality. Firm acidity and slightly sharp tannins currently give a somewhat musclebound quality to the flavors of blackberry, licorice and spices. But this distinctly tight, gutsy wine is also very intense, with the yield here significantly lower than the basic Marcenasco bottling. This 2009 calls for a good four or five years of cellaring.
