MARCENASCO BAROLO 2019 DOCG
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer RENATO RATTI
Renato Rattiís single vineyard Marcenasco comes at a significant price and focuses on the elegant side of the equation. itís really all the nuances, shades and intensities of flavours. Take the colour - itís a gently ambering medium bricky red. The nose is intense, slightly spicy and gently complex with dried roses, ripe plum, raspberry and red licorice notes along with some minerality. Dry and fairly intense on the palate, itís medium bodied, quite well structured and slightly spicy with elegant, ripe plum and licorice-tinged, red cherry flavours with a lingering, bright, gentle, cedar-sandalwood-tinged finish. This seamless 100% Nebbiolo has 14`% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar Assessed in an ISO glass from a freshly opened bottle on December 13, 2023. CSPC 713479
