The smooth, precise palate offers crushed raspberry, Marasca cherry, licorice and dried botanical herbs alongside fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity lifts the finish. Enjoy through 2027. collapse

The cherry scents, cedar, liquorice and sinuous palate faithfully reflect the velvety terroir of La Morra. Both dynamic and drinkable.

The Marcenasco cru is located directly under the winery, and although it is not in the official list of MGA crus, the vineyard name is registered to this winery. In the 2015 Barolo Marcenasco, you get the full fruit and dark berry nuances of the vintage with pretty softness and approachable, supple tannins. This wine celebrated its 50th anniversary (1965-2015) with this vintage. 60,000 bottles were produced.-ML collapse

Soft, pliant and inviting, the Marcenasco captures all the best the vintage has to offer. Pretty floral and spiced notes add nuance to a core of sweet red berry fruit. Medium in body and racy, with lovely persistence, the 2015 has so much to offer. This is one of the finer recent versions of the Marcenasco I can remember tasting. The 2015 is flat out delicious. Another year or two in bottle will help the tannins soften a bit further. -- Antonio Galloni collapse
